Elon Musk: Businesses and governments have to pay to use Twitter
Elon Musk has said businesses and governments may soon need to pay a small fee to use Twitter just weeks after announcing it plans to buy the social media platform for $ 44 billion.
The tech billionaire, who is also the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, added in a post late Tuesday that the platform will continue to be free for ordinary users.
It is unclear how much businesses and governments will pay, or whether certain groups such as nonprofits and journalists would be exempt from any fees imposed.
Twitter has not yet commented on this statement.
Over the years, Twitter has not managed to make as much money as other social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
The platform is already experimenting with a paid subscription service called Twitter Blue in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand that offers additional features.
