Elon Musk, the CEO of Twitter, announced on Saturday that users would soon be able to monetize their own content in addition to posting lengthy messages beyond the typical character limit.
Musk, who took over Twitter in late October, has already fired several top executives and announced plans for significant changes to the company. Musk did not specify how content creators could profit from their work.
Musk wrote on Saturday that Twitter would soon be able to attach long-form text, ending the absurdity of notepad screenshots.
He continued, “Following by creator monetization for all forms of content.”
About a day prior, Twitter had announced plans for a new verification system that would charge users between $4 and $8 to receive the coveted blue checkmark. A verification badge traditionally indicated a public figure’s authentic account, but Musk claims this created a “lord and peasant” system on the platform.
