New York: Elon Musk, who bought Twitter a few days ago, has given a big blow to private companies and governments around the world by making a big announcement. According to Musk's tweet, now governments and companies will have to pay for using Twitter.
"Twitter will always be free for general users, but may cost a bit for commercial/government users," Musk said in a message on his Twitter account.
Twitter is not new to the idea of fee-based subscriptions and Twitter Blue is a similar concept, giving Twitter's most loyal customers exclusive access to premium features and app customization for a small monthly subscription fee.
Twitter Blue is available on Twitter in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand for iOS, Android and the web.
Whereas Twitter Blue offers special features to its paying customers. What Musk hints at is for commercial and government users to use the native platform fee-based.
Following Elon Musk's deal to buy Twitter for $44 billion, the social media giant's future is shrouded in uncertainty. Some reports have indicated that Musk plans to take Twitter to the public again after three years.
On the one hand, Elon Musk wants to eliminate free Twitter, but on the other wants to expand Twitter's reach beyond the 'niche' audience.
"It's the kind of place right now. I want a big percentage of the country to be on it, engage in the dialogue," Elon Musk said at the annual Met Gala in New York.
Elon Musk said he wants Twitter to be "as broadly inclusive as possible, where ideally most of America is on it and talking," and as credible as possible.
