Twitter to introduce higher priced subscription with no ads

Elon Musk has tweeted that Twitter will be introducing a “higher priced” subscription that will have “zero ads”.

“Ads are too frequent on Twitter and too big. Taking steps to address both in coming weeks,” he tweeted on Saturday.

It comes after the company was reportedly hit by a 35% revenue drop in Q4 2022, amid a cutback in spending from advertisers, according to the Information.
