X (Formerly Twitter) charge of $1 annual fee new subscription

starting today. We’re testing a new program (Not A Bot) in New Zealand and the Philippines. New, unverified accounts will be required to sign up for a $1 annual subscription to be able to post & interact with other posts. Within this test, existing users are not affected.

This new test was developed to bolster our already successful efforts to reduce spam, manipulation of our platform, and bot activity. In addition to this, balancing platform accessibility with the small fee amount. It is not a profit driver. So far, subscription options have proven to be the main solution that works at scale.

Two new tiers of X Premium subscriptions launching soon. One is lower cost with all features, but no reduction in ads, and the other is more expensive, but has no ads. Twitter only had a single subscription model so far under the X Pro monicker. The X Pro is priced at Rs 650 for a month when purchased via the website.
