X, formerly Twitter, launches new premium subscription plans
Elon Musk's social media platform X has launched two new premium subscription plans, including an ad-free tier, in a push to turn the platform into an everything app.
The Premium+ plan, priced at $16 per month, includes all the tools and features offered by the platform, minus the ads. It is currently only available for users accessing the platform through a web browser.
The basic tier is priced at $3 per month but is not ad-free. X is also planning to bundle video and audio calling for some users.
Musk has been exploring several options to extensively monetize the platform, which he acquired for $44 billion in October 2022.
