Twitter may charge fees for commercial, govt accounts

Commercial and government users’ accounts on Twitter may have to pay a “slight” fee to stay on the platform, Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, has said.

Mr Musk said this Wednesday, a week after Twitter agreed a definitive deal to sell itself to Mr Musk, the world’s richest man, at approximately $44 billion.

Mr Musk, however, said in a post said that the platform will continue to be free for “casual users”.

“Twitter will always be free for casual users, but maybe a slight cost for commercial/government users,” Mr Musk said in a tweet.

“Some revenue is better than none,” he added.
