Want To Read News On Twitter? You May Have To Pay For It From Next Month

The users will be charged on a "per article basis" and will end up paying more if they don't sign up for a monthly subscription, said Elon Musk.
Twitter will allow media publishers to charge users to read their articles from next month, Elon Musk said on Saturday.

Users will be charged on a "per article basis" and will end up paying more if they don't sign up for a monthly subscription, said Musk in his latest tweak to the operations of the platform he took over in October.

"Rolling out next month, this platform will allow media publishers to charge users on a per article basis with one click," said the tech billionaire who recently removed the 'blue tick' for most verified profiles who haven't subscribed to the Twitter Blue programme.


 "This enables users who would not sign up for a monthly subscription to pay a higher per article price for when they want to read an occasional article. Should be a major win-win for both media orgs and the public," he added.


Several media publishers already use a paywall on their websites for subscription-based content.

Musk had earlier said Twitter is a competitor to legacy media for news and hinted at a paywall bypass for publishers willing to work with the platform.

"The more Twitter improves its signal to noise ratio, the less relevant conventional news becomes," he had further said.

Earlier in the day, Twitter announced creators too can monetize their content on the platform.

"Support content creators around the world in near and far away places! For many this represents a vital source of income and enables them to put more time into creating great content for you," said Musk.

"All proceeds go to content creators, we keep nothing," he added.

Twitter's biggest operational change has been removing the legacy blue tick from the accounts of verified users who are yet to subscribe to Twitter Blue, an $8 monthly subscription programme. The subscribers not only get a blue tick but also get to post longer tweets with an editing feature, and are "prioritised" on the platform.
