In an official statement issued this week, the social network X (formerly Twitter) announced this It will start charging new users a $1 annual fee. Modernity is being tested in New Zealand as well as in the Philippines.
According to the company, this signature is called “Not a Bot,” and as the name says, it verifies that the user is legitimate and not a bot.
Therefore, a subscription should ensure the user can post content, share posts, reply and even quote other posts on X. In other words, he or she will need to pay for a “subscriber” account.
New users can also choose not to pay for a subscription, but this should result in access to a “read-only” version of the social network.
This new software aims to defend the platform against bots and spammers who try to manipulate the social network and disrupt the experience of other X users. We look forward to sharing more about the results soon.
It is worth noting that since Elon Musk took over, the X social network has had a premium plan that includes additional features. Additionally, the company is also working on a second option to remove all ads from the platform.
