X Introduces Premium+ and Basic Subscription Tiers

X to Launch Audio and Video Calling Features

X, formerly known as Twitter, has unveiled two new subscription tiers for its platform, expanding on the existing $8 per month Premium subscription, which now occupies the middle tier.

The most affordable subscription offered by X is the Basic tier, priced at $3 per month. With this subscription, users gain the ability to edit their posts, create longer posts (including extended videos), undo posts, access the distraction-free Reader mode for longer posts, enjoy background video playback, download videos, and receive a slight boost in replies. Users can also utilize SMS-based two-factor authentication, and their direct messages (DMs) are encrypted. Customization options include changing app icons, organizing bookmark folders, adjusting navigation and theme settings, highlighting top posts in a dedicated profile tab, and hiding likes and subscriptions. Notably, the Basic tier does not provide users with a verification checkmark or ID verification.

The Premium tier remains available at $8 per month and offers all the features of the Basic tier. In addition, Premium subscribers benefit from fewer ads in the “For You” and “Following” sections, a larger boost in reply visibility, access to the verification checkmark (with the option to hide it), ID verification, and entry to the Creator Hub, where users can earn money from posting and garnering support from their followers. Premium subscribers also gain access to analytics, X Pro, and Media Studio.

The newly introduced Premium+ tier, priced at $16 per month, includes all the features of the Premium tier but goes further by eliminating all ads in the “For You” and “Following” sections and offering the most substantial boost in replies.
