You may soon only be able to access all of Twitter if you pay for it, so if you thought the new $7.99 Twitter Blue membership was the end of it, think again. Elon Musk has reportedly proposed making the site solely available to premium users, according to sources, which have been providing inside information on Twitter.
There have not been any formal statements as of yet, so it is unknown at this point how serious Musk is about this. To yet, a request for comment from Twitter has received no response.
Twitter is in a crazy state as a result of the news. On Friday of last week, shortly after Musk’s $44 billion acquisition of the firm, which was finalized in late October, the social network behemoth lost close to half of its workers. In order to minimize costs, the new owner of Twitter has sacked both managers and executives, alleging that the business was losing $4 million every day.
He said that three months of severance compensation, which is 50% more than what is necessary by law, had been provided to the sacked workers.
However, in a humiliating turn of events, Twitter has lately contacted several of the dismissed workers about returning. This is due to the fact that some of the workers had been “accidentally” fired, while others had been let go before management understood Musk’s ambitious plans for the platform required their expertise and experience.
Moving future, the price of Twitter Blue, a premium tier with more capabilities, will also increase. It will eventually increase from $3.99 to $7.99, and those who want the coveted blue tick certification will need to purchase it. Additional premium features will be available, including as ad-free articles, bookmark folders, the ability to undo tweets, unique app icons, and others.
