After the acquisition of Twitter by the eccentric billionaire Elon Musk, there have been some drastic changes in the platform. Musk’s perspective has introduced new regimes and paywalls to the user structure of Twitter, making it a more “profitable” and “creator-friendly” social media site. In his latest change, Musk has introduced a “subscription” option for users. They can sub to their preferred creator to get access to the “exclusive content” and gain some other perks, including a public badge that will denote them as a “subscriber” in the comment sections.
