Elon Musk may charge all Twitter users to use service

A report from Twitter Platformer claims that new boss Musk is planning to charge “most or all users a subscription fee to use Twitter,” and people will also be required to pay for Twitter Blue subscription for blue tick (and other features).

This idea was reportedly discussed with employees in a recent meeting, according to a person who is familiar with the matter. The report says that Musk is planning to allow everyone to use Twitter for a limited time period per month, after which users will be asked to buy a Twitter subscription to continue browsing the website.

At the moment, it is unknown whether Musk is seriously planning to consider this subscription plan for Twitter. The report says that the company team is currently tied up with the expansion of the new verification subscription feature. So, even if the platform has plans to launch a subscription for accessing the service, it isn’t going to happen anytime soon.

The cited source revealed that Musk has been “heavily involved in the chaotic launch of Blue,” and he has been very active in participating in meetings and exchanging emails with Esther Crawford, a director of product management at the company.
