After acquiring Twitter, Elon Musk set out to find ways to generate revenue for the social media platform, as the change in ownership has impacted advertising income. The platform has undergone significant changes, with ads becoming increasingly prominent. However, Musk and his team aim to capitalize on the growing trend towards subscription services.

X | Twitter will have two new subscription options

In recent weeks, there have been numerous reports indicating that Twitter | X plans to implement new subscription tiers, in addition to the existing Premium option. Elon Musk confirmed a few days ago that these new subscription levels will be revealed soon, which has sparked controversy from the outset. According to Musk, X Premium will offer a low-cost subscription that still includes ads, along with a higher-priced subscription that provides an ad-free experience.

Musk announces two subscription plans for X Premium

What is X Premium, how much will it cost, and what does it currently include?

The idea of paying for a subscription and still seeing ads has not been well-received by the community, as it is seen as contradictory. This is especially relevant given that YouTube has recently intensified its battle against ad-blockers, affecting the user experience on online platforms.

So far, X Premium offers two payment options: a monthly subscription of $8 and an annual subscription. Both options guarantee users a priority position in search results and conversations, a greater number of posts between sponsored tweets, the ability to edit posts after publication, the option to upload 1080p high-resolution videos, and early access to new features.

Although Elon Musk has not disclosed the prices of the new subscriptions, the first option that includes ads despite payment may be related to the recent pilot program in New Zealand and the Philippines, where users pay $1 USD per year for each new account. This raises questions about the future of the free mode, which only allows reading tweets but not posting them.
