The feature will be like Twitter Notes where people will be able to post longer tweets than the current 280-character limit. It will be “followed by creator monetization for all forms of content,” he posted.
A Twitter follower asked Musk: “Will people be able to subscribe/ donate to pieces of writing like this?”
Musk replied: “Absolutely“.
“We definitely need to incentivize people to do a lot more interactions on Twitter,” said the world’s richest man who has taken on the company, firing almost 50 percent of its workforce.
On creator monetization, a user said that YouTube gives creators 55 percent of ad revenue, to which Musk replied: “We can beat that”.
Gurbaksh Singh Chahal, CEO of on-demand manufacturing and procurement platform ProcureMet, asked Musk: “For, Twitter Blue it will now do 42-minute chunks at 1080 resolution, allowing you to break up a longer video. According to Elon Musk, the 42-minute time limit will be implemented next month”.
Musk replied: “42 mins to start, then several hours in a month or so”.
Meanwhile, Elon Musk has started testing a $7.99 Twitter Blue subscription plan for Apple iOS users, which provides verification and other benefits. According to The Verge, the microblogging platform has updated its application on iOS to support the monthly blue subscription.
The application’s latest update on App Store mentioned that the users have to pay for the new plan to get verified on the platform “just like the celebrities, companies, and politicians you already follow.”
