X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, introduced two new subscription plans for its users, adding more features and options to its service.
The new plans are Basic and Premium+, which join the existing Premium plan that costs ₱440/$8 a month. The Basic plan is the cheapest option, priced at ₱165/$3 a month or ₱1,752.38/$32 a year, while the Premium+ plan is the most expensive one, costing ₱880/$16 a month or ₱9,200/$170 a year.
The Basic plan offers some essential features that are not available to free users, such as the ability to edit posts, create longer posts and videos, undo posting, access Reader mode, download videos, use SMS two-factor authentication, and encrypted DMs. However, it does not include a verification checkmark, nor does it reduce the number of ads on the platform.
The Premium plan includes everything in the Basic plan, plus additional features such as half the ads in the For You and Following tabs, a larger reply boost, a verification checkmark, ID verification, access to Creator Hub and analytics tools, and more customization options.
The Premium+ plan is the ultimate option for users with an ad-free experience and the largest reply boost. It includes everything in the Premium plan but no ads in the For You and Following tabs.
To subscribe to any of the new tiers, you can go to https://twitter.com/i/premium_sign_up and choose a plan.
X has made several changes to its platform, since its acquisition by Elon Musk. Apart from the premium subscription service, the company announced a “Not A Bot” subscription fee for new users in the Philippines and New Zealand to combat spam and bots. It also rolled out a new audio and video calling feature to its users.
