Twitter, now known as X, is beginning to keep its owner Elon Musk’s word by starting to pay those users of Twitter Blue (now X Premium) for the content they produce on the platform, the vast majority are satisfied with their income.
Since his arrival on the social network, Elon Musk has had a goal between his eyebrows, that of monetizing the platform, squeezing every last corner where this is possible. But the truth is that he wants money not only for himself (although in the long run, the more money there is circulating in X, the more money for himself), but also wants deserving users to monetize their influence.
This is where the program for the Advertising Revenue Sharewhich consists of a section in which users who pay $8 a month for the X Premium service or belong to verified organization accounts can earn money with their successful publications.
For example, Robert Blake, is a youtuber with more than 87,000 followers, who You have earned $307 from your posts this month. As he points out with this, she will not be able to live, but taking into account that You have made an investment of 8 dollars to earn 300 for something that you were going to do whether you were paid or not, it seems like a good deal.
Requirements to be able to collect from Twitter
As the company explains in the specific section on Advertising Revenue Sharing, to be eligible first you must be an X Premium user or have one verified organization account. Afterwards, you must have at least 15 million impressions in the last three months adding up all your posts, plus you have to have a minimum of 500 followers.
Apparently the income is based on the number of impressions you have and the ads that appear in your threads. Although the truth is that it is not very clear how it works, since Musk added that profits depend on how many ads were shown to other verified users.
A former head of Twitter explained to The Washington Post that: “”The figures are totally and completely false. It’s all completely made up. It really seems like they are writing checks arbitrarily people who like it.”
This does not seem like such a far-fetched theory, since taking into account that For Musk, you are either on his team or against him. it is possible that they have paid (at least first) to those accounts that have the approval of the magante.
