X (Twitter) Blue is Dead, Welcome X Premium
Twitter, now known as X, offers a paid subscription service that offers users a blue check mark and a variety of added features.
Once Twitter re-branded to X, the subscription service Twitter Blue turned into X Blue. And now in yet another shift, X Blue is now known as X Premium.
X took over the @premium username and on Saturday the account’s description now reads, “Subscribe to get your blue check mark and access to new features like Edit, long videos, 25k+ character long posts, bookmark folders and more.”
The account’s first retweet or announcement since June 28 was a retweet…err…repost of X owner Elon Musk, detailing ad revenue share, which requires an X Premium subscription. Essentially, if you get 15 million views in 3 months along with some other basic requirements–you can get paid to Xeet (?) while sitting on the toilet.
In order to qualify for a share in ad revenue, membership with X Premium (Blue) is mandatory. If you’re not an X Premium (Blue) subscriber, any ad revenue generated will be retained by X.
To be eligible for your ad revenue share, you must be an X Premium (Blue) subscriber.
The ad money will otherwise be kept by X if you are not an X Premium (Blue) subscriber.
This program is open to everyone.
