The next time you go to express your thoughts on Twitter, now X, it may cost you a little more than the time it takes to post. There are reports that the social media company is rolling out a fee.

What are you calling it these days? Are you still going with Twitter or are you saying X? And if you are saying X, are you still referring to Tweets? It is a little confusing.

But regardless of the name or confusion over the name, it looks like a one dollar fee is looming for users. This fee is not currently being mentioned for New York State users. The plan is to start in places like New Zealand and the Philippines.

As of October 17th, 2023 we’ve started testing “Not A Bot”, a new subscription method for new users in two countries. This new test was developed to bolster our already significant efforts to reduce spam, manipulation of our platform and bot activity. This will evaluate a potentially powerful measure to help us combat bots and spammers on X, while balancing platform accessibility with the small fee amount. Within this test, existing users are not affected.

Is Twitter, now X, that important to you? What are you willing to pay in order to keep up with the latest news or drama of the world? For some, social media is more than a news outlet, it is an addiction. In fact, New York State is concerned with the safety of kids and social media outlets.
