One of the many benefits of having a Blue subscription is to monetise your posts. Users will be able to get a cut from any advertising that’s being done on their posts but now Elon Musk has announced that he is making a slight change to creator monetisation rules.
He said that any posts that are corrected by Community Notes – X’s user-submitted fact-checking feature – will become ineligible for revenue share. He said that he is bringing this change to “maximise the incentive for accuracy over sensationalism.”
In a separate tweet, Musk further warned that Community Notes contributors must not try to ‘weaponise’ the feature to demonetise people.
“Worth ‘noting’ that any attempts to weaponise @CommunityNotes to demonetise people will be immediately obvious, because all code and data is open source,” he said.
Musk’s news ‘initiative’
The development comes soon after Musk and company CEO Linda Yaccarino addressed an all-hands meeting where the duo told the employees about their plans to launch a news distribution service.
May be named XWire, the news distribution service is said to rival existing platforms like Cision’s PR Newswire to disseminate company news and press releases.
Musk has also been pushing making the platform a trusted platform for news. Notably, X is largely seen as a reliable and one of fastest sources of information. News quickly breaks on the platform and people usually go to X, formerly Twitter, to check any development.
Musk has, in the past, encouraged people to do citizen journalism on X.
“Please encourage more citizen journalism! You can do live video easily from your phone. More on-the-ground reporting from regular citizens will change the world,” he posted.
