Elon Musk Is Preparing An Ad-free Version Of Twitter Blue

You can get blue ticks on Twitter already, but you have to subscribe to Twitter Blue. Now that Elon Musk has spilled the beans, we know that Twitter is working on a subscription service without ads.

Musk began his post by agreeing that Twitter’s adverts are annoying and constantly coming up. He said he was working to resolve both problems.

Musk also announced in a second tweet that a paid membership service would soon be available for those who want to watch Timeline without interruptions.

According to a tweet from Musk on Monday, published by The Verge, “there will also be higher priced subscriptions that don’t allow adverts” (January 23, 2023).

Pricing for this ad-free premium service has not been determined as of this writing. Available today, Twitter Blue costs $8 per month on the web and up to $11 on Android and iOS.

Blue ticks, editing tweets, uploading lengthier videos at 1080p, and more are just a few of the premium capabilities available to current Twitter Blue customers. There will be less advertisements for Twitter Blue users compared to standard users, however this has not yet been implemented.

Following a revelation by The Information that Twitter’s income had dropped 40% on the same day compared to the previous year, this announcement comes as a shock.

Twitter blamed the drop on the introduction of its Twitter Blue app, which requires users to pay for verification in order to mimic notable personalities, businesses, and politicians, according to an internal slide.

In addition, Twitter has lately banned third-party clients like Tweetbot and Twitterific for breaking its developer agreement. These third-party applications frequently provide greater functionality than the official Twitter client, such as presenting a timeline without ads.
