Twitter CEO Elon Musk has announced a new Twitter service that he is calling a “win-win” for both the public and media groups. Starting from next month, Twitter will let media publishers charge users who do not wish to subscribe to media offerings, for each article they read.
In other words, users who do not sign up to a monthly subscription will be allowed to pay a “higher per article price” for occasional reads. Musk hasn’t revealed any additional information regarding the one-click service or the regulations that publishers will need to comply with.

Twitter’s pay-per-article offering seems to have emerged amidst the company’s race to increase its revenue by introducing monetization sources everywhere across the platform.
