This could be a reality soon. According to reports, you may have to PAY to use Twitter by the end of this year.  

CEO Jack Dorsey said during a call with investors last week that it’s preparing to explore how it could institute some sort of paid subscription model, saying “you will likely see some tests this year.”

At this point, most of the $3.5 billion in revenue it generates per year comes from ads, and Dorsey says the company is actively looking at finding additional revenue streams. That would mean making us pay. The most obvious move would be to invite people to pay to avoid seeing sponsored tweets on their timeline, but that doesn’t mean that an “every user pays” system isn’t being considered.

I’d actually pay to not see a certain someone’s tweets in my news feed every morning…how about you!?




How about we pay NOT to see trolls instead. How do you feel about this?
