Elon Musk, the billionaire founder of Tesla Inc., says Twitter will soon allow media publishers to charge users on per article basis. 

Musk, in a Twitter post on Saturday, said the feature will be rolled out next month. 

He explained that the new service will allow readers who do not sign up for a monthly membership to pay a higher per-article price for reading an occasional article. 

“Rolling out next month, this platform will allow media publishers to charge users on a per article basis with one click,” the Twitter chief executive officer (CEO) tweeted. 


“This enables users who would not sign up for a monthly subscription to pay a higher per article price for when they want to read an occasional article.

“Should be a major win-win for both media orgs & the public.” 


In October 2022, Musk took over Twitter after completing a $44 billion deal.

For its blue tick mark, the microblogging platform started charging users $8 per month last year.

Earlier in the month, Musk had said users of the platform will be able to monetise their content, including long-form text and hours-long video.

Giving updates, the Twitter CEO, on Friday, said the microblogging platform will take a 10 percent cut on the content subscriptions after the first year.
