This comes a day after it was reported that Musk’s platform was planning on charging users a $1 annual fee to access basic features.

Labelled “Not A Bot”, the subscription model aims at charging users for likes, reposts, bookmarking posts on the web version of the platform, and quoting other accounts’ posts.

X noted that the purpose of adding this subscription model is to combat spammers and bots, and observing that pricing will be different in different countries, based on the rate of exchange.
