Twitter X is Going to charge Monthly Subscriptions for All. 🐦💸 #Twitter #TwitterBlue
This widely utilized social media behemoth is on the verge of embracing a subscription-based model.

@kuketzblog Das könnte wohl auf Dauer wirklich der Todesstoß für das Netzwerk werden, wenn der Großteil der Leute, die dort nur ihre Freizeit verbringen, nicht bereit ist, auch noch dafür zu bezahlen. Sieht man ja auch gut daran, wie wenige dieser Gruppe bereit waren, für ein #TwitterBlue Abo zu zahlen...

Something I find very funny about #Twitter #X is how offering a paid product to power users is, in itself, probably a decently good idea

But #TwitterBlue #XPremium is a disaster and it's mostly because of catastrophic execution

Another solid piece from Matt Binder regarding Elon Musk's Twitter

Elon Musk's X follower count bloated by millions of new, inactive accounts

Elon Musk is by far the most followed user on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, which he acquired in October of last year. With more than 153 million followers at the time of publication, Musk's account @elonmusk is basically a microcosm of the platform as a whole.

So, who are Musk's followers in relation to the platform? How active are they? How often do they post? Are they consuming a lot of creator content on X? Do they subscribe to Musk's subscription plan, X Premium, formerly known as Twitter Blue? Are Musk's followers real?

Mashable has reviewed new data collected by third-party researcher Travis Brown, who compiled basic account information on all of Musk's more than 153 million followers via a meticulous process that respected X's rate limit parameters.

Get this. For the shitty version of Xpro / Tweetdeck.

To even have multiple accounts on it, EVERY account has to be subscribed to Twitter Blue.

That is scummy as hell. Plus, not everyone who has 10+ accounts can afford to shill out 100 dollars per month for something that SHOULD OF REMAINED FREE.

Apparently, the new subscription server everyone likes to make fun of, Twitter Blue will now be renamed as “X Premium.”

Is X copying Youtube now? Still, X is still a terrible name, does X Premium mean something more... well naughty?

No branding issue at all here. Really none 🤷🏻‍♂️


Voilà que #Musk a renommé « #TwitterBlue » en « #XPremium »

Je n’ai rien contre le porno. Mais « X Premium », c’est une marque littéralement impossible à distinguer de celle de la formule payante d’un site porno quelconque.

Subscribers of #Twitter Blue, which btw. is still officially named "Twitter Blue" on "X", can now hide their #TwitterBlue checkmarks in case they are ashamed of showing that they pay and finance Elmos meltdown.

But you can still identify them if:

- they're using the "edit" feature which marks their "X's" as edited
- their "X's" have more than 280 char
- their "X's" contain bold, italic text
- their videos are in 1080p
- they have a hexagon (NFT) profile picture

A stylised version of the ‘X’ app logo on my smartphone menu, where the background is identical to a pre-Musk Twitter Blue logo (one of the membership perk selection) that resembles a horizontal splash of paints, mixing the old colours of Twitter sky-blue and a magenta — both of which are happier colours than the ‘X’ logo is ever seen with, as far as I know

The letter cited #research published by #CCDH in June examining #HateSpeech on #Twitter, which #Musk renamed #X. The research consisted of 8 papers, incl’g 1 that found Twitter had taken no action against 99% of the 100 #TwitterBlue accounts the ctr reported for “tweeting hate.” The letter called the research “false, misleading or both”& said the org had used improper methodology.

The ltr added that the ctr was funded by Twitter’s competitors or foreign govs “in support of an ulterior agenda.”

In light of the new #X branding, and the elimination of all things blue, #TwitterBlue doesn’t make sense as a product name anymore. Sure, it still exists as-is in the app, but that’s just because of #Twitter’s scattershot implementation.

Meta verification or Twitter Blue? Surprisingly, Meta's more expensive & invasive approach might make you reconsider. Threads requires ID submissions, even for changing profile pics, tightly linking you to your account. While Twitter only needs your phone number, providing greater privacy and less censorship. Sometimes, cheaper and simpler is better. #TwitterBlue #MetaVerification #PrivacyConcerns #SocialMediaComparison

Honestly just waiting for a couple of weeks for #ElonMusk to rebrand #TwitterBlue as Triple X.

Since #ElonMusk owns (which links to nothing right now—although #Google says its dangerous to visit for some reason in #Chrome), I suspect he will change #Twitter’s domain to X, then sell off the Twitter domain later on.

Elon could also make keeping your user handle a feature only available for #TwitterBlue subscribers.

@freemo @icedquinn @Jain @Stellar @stux Interesting. Yeah right leaning people hate folks too, IMHO the problem becomes when your hatred for someone consumes you so much that you can’t rationally talk about something pertaining to that person. Like I could explain how, for example, #TwitterBlue is a good idea for the platform, but stux probably wouldn’t accept any such argument, most likely because #ElonMusk came up with the idea, and #ElonMusk is bad. That sort of blind hatred is just cringe to me. At the very least, it limits one from having genuine, constructive conversations about certain subjects.

Again, for about 2 weeks now, the number of these generic Tweets has been increasing dramatically. In some instances you get 4-5 of these threads directly below each other. If you open a thread, all the containing tweets contained are loaded and count against your limit.

If you happen to launch a quota of 600 tweets/day for non-paying users, because you need them to buy #Twitterblue, filling their timelines with this generic bot content seems like the perfect tool to drain their "free" #quota.

Ben Miller

#Musk just introduced a "read-limit". #Verified accounts can read 6000 tweets a day, #Unverified can read 600 tweets a day.

Official reason: "measure against data scraping" (I‘ll explain why this is bs below)

Inofficial but actual reason: #Twitter is running out of money and Muk needs to take even more drastic measures to force people to buy #TwitterBlue

🧵Here is why Musks explanation is bs:

So #Twitter just released a new #TwitterBlue feature: you can now write "tweets" up to… 25.000 characters 😵‍💫

I’m assuming this shitty feature is why Twitter doesn’t show that a tweet is part of thread anymore on the main feed

"You want to tell your audience a story that doesn’t fit in one tweet? Subscribe to Blue, or we won’t help it to get traction on the platform."

The enshittification of the #BirdSite is doing well


@GreenFire imagine if :activitypub: instance would offer such tiers via :patreon: , #flattr, #kachingle or :paypal: like the "priority queue" on 2b2t.

One thing we've to also account for is that #TwitterBlue and #TwitterGold are the only ways to get #API restrictions lifted, and I'm quite convinced major news outlets like @heiseonline or @ntv got those #GoldBadges for free as they would've likely threatened to quit #Twitter if they can't continue to use their toolchain to post stuff...

#Twitter is working to limit the number of DMs you can send per day before having to sign up for #TwitterBlue 👀

So naturally, just like most servives started to copy the #TwitterBlue subscription model, for stupid paid verifications, which failed in similar fashions, i.e., the recent #Gmail fiasco #Reddit has now decided to increase their #API costs and also basically block third-party apps for their services. Just like Twitter.

If only we had a service. Which was free. With API access. Various verification methods. Always-on and free API practices. Multiple apps for many different users and their needs.
