Elon Musk, the CEO of Twitter, announced on Monday that the microblogging platform is “spinning up subscriptions” so that users can “charge” their followers for specific content.
When one user used the new Blue function, which allows subscribers to create tweets of up to 4,000 characters.
Musk responded, “Excellent use of a long tweet! The next upgrade will allow you to post considerably lengthier tweets with basic formatting, allowing you to post any content on Twitter.”
“We’re also working on subscriptions, so you can charge people for material and have them pay with a single click.”
Several users responded to Musk’s article with their comments.
One user inquired, “Is it legal to charge to read a tweet? Another person wrote, “Excellent concept. An author can now tweet his entire book, perhaps one chapter at a time. Keep the first few tweets free and the rest charged.”
The future function will provide users with an excellent opportunity to make money from their followers on the micro-blogging site.
Meanwhile, the microblogging network said last week that non-Twitter Blue users will no longer be able to use text texts as a two-factor authentication (2FA) method after March 20.
Twitter revealed earlier this month that its Blue service with verification will cost Rs 650 per month on the web and Rs 900 on Android and iOS mobile devices in India.
Furthermore, Blue customers in the United States can send extended tweets of up to 4,000 characters.
Blue users will also see 50% fewer advertisements in their home timeline.
