Elon Musk, the head of Twitter, stated that the firm is taking action to address the problem of frequent and large adverts on the site, but he also added that customers will have to pay more for that membership.
Musk posted on Twitter, saying, “Twitter has an excessive number and size of ads. Taking action in the upcoming weeks to address both. A more expensive subscription that enables no adverts will also be available.”
Following Musk’s tweets, a verified account on Twitter named The Rabbit Hole asked, “Can individual users opt to monetize accounts through ads? Currently, advertisers reach out individually to users; creating a solution integrated with the platform will let Twitter take a cut and give creators a pathway to monetizing our content.”
Responding to this, Musk said, “Maybe there’s a way to do this by placing an ad below tweet details.”
Musk also announced that the upcoming update of the micro-blogging platform will make it less mandatory for users to use the “For You” algorithmic timeline.
Musk tweeted, “Next Twitter update will remember whether you were on For You (ie recommended), Following or list you made & stop switching you back to recommended tweets.”
