Musk Says ‘X’ is a news platform

While portraying Twitter now-X as a news platform, Musk said, “I don’t read the legacy media propaganda much anymore. It’s a waste of time and a sadness generator.” Furthermore, he also added that if anyone wanted to hear about him, he could get his news from X much more immediately than other news sources. Musk’s tweet reads, “Just get my news from X – much more immediate, has actual world-class subject matter experts and tons of humor. So much better!”

However, this statement came from the X owner after he announced that X would remove the headlines and text and retain the lead image from the links to news articles shared on the platform. For now, the publishers can only share news links on X as cards along with a source link, a featured image, and an abridged headline, on the timeline. However, this change is leading to more clicks on the posts and driving traffic to the sites.

It is speculated that Elon Musk did this to get people to spend more time on his platform and force them to opt for the subscription service for more information. However, users can write some text with the shortened links along with their cards. In fact, X can be seen as a premium service that allows a post of up to 25,000 characters. Therefore, Musk is portraying X as a relevant source of news. Subscribers can also post longer videos on X and receive a share of ad revenue.
