Elon Musk is worried that there are too many ads on Twitter. You will be able to turn them off, but for an appropriate fee

Twitter Blue is a paid subscription that – at least in theory – gives users of the service access to “premium” features. One of them is “blue stamp”, which confirms the authenticity of a given account, although – as the last months have shown –

The second benefit is fewer ads. It is assumed that subscribers of Twitter Blue will be displayed 50 percent more. less banners and promoted posts. However, here again we have to use the word “theoretically” because – – this function has not yet been implemented.

All this, however, does not prevent Elon Musk from making more plans and making more promises. Over the weekend via (nomen omen) Twitter, the second richest man in the world announced the introduction of a new more expensive version of Twitter Blue, which would be ad-free.

Ads appear on Twitter too often and are too big. We are taking steps to address both issues in the coming weeks. In addition, there will be a more expensive subscription, where there will be no ads

– emphasized Elon Musk.

However, the new owner of Twitter did not specify how much Twitter without ads will cost us. At the moment, the Twitter Blue subscription price is $8 a month or $84 a yearbut only if we buy it via the website’s web application.

If we decide to purchase via the application on smartphones with Android or iOS, the price increases to $11 per month. In this way, Twitter wants to compensate for the commission that Google and Apple charge from application developers.

Twitter blocks third-party apps

In recent days, the billionaire has made the controversial decision to block all unofficial Twitter applications such as Tweetboot if Twitterrific. The reason for this decision was the fact that these applications did not display ads to users, which translated into lower revenues for Twitter itself.

. So much so that the owner of the Hartford Building, where Twitter leases its offices in San Francisco, sued the company for over $136,000 in unpaid rent.

Perhaps soon Elon Musk will want to give up renting this building altogether. In recent days, Twitter organized an online auction where it was selling off equipment from its offices in San Francisco.
