Elon Musk’s social media platform X, previously recognized as Twitter, introduced two fresh subscription options on Friday, one of which is the Premium+ tier designed for users who are willing to pay for an ad-free experience.
The Premium+ plan, which is priced at approximately $16 per month, encompasses all the tools and features available on the platform, with the exception of ads, according to an announcement made on the platform. It is initially accessible to users using a web browser to access the platform.
The standard tier costs $3 per month but does not eliminate ads.
X is additionally preparing to offer video and audio calling features to certain users as part of its efforts to transform the platform into a comprehensive application.
Musk has been exploring various avenues to significantly monetize the social media platform, which he purchased for $44 billion in October 2022.
