Elon Musk Announces Twitter’s Plan to Launch Per-Article Charging Feature in May

Twitter is set to launch a new feature that could potentially provide publishers with a new way to earn from their content. As per company CEO Elon Musk’s announcement, Twitter will soon allow media publishers to charge users for access to individual articles they post on the website. However, users who opt for this per-article option will pay a higher price compared to those with recurring subscriptions. Musk said that the feature is designed for readers who only want to occasionally read specific content from a publisher. Therefore, the cost of individual articles will likely be lower than a monthly subscription.

Details on the upcoming feature are still unclear, and Musk has not disclosed which media outlets will be eligible for per-article charging. Additionally, it is unknown how much Twitter will take as commission. Previously, Musk announced that Twitter would not take any money from creators for subscriptions for the first year. After the year is up, Twitter will be taking a 10 percent cut on subscriptions. It is uncertain if this rule will apply to per-article payments.
