X, formerly known as Twitter, has unveiled two new subscription tiers for its platform. These options are in addition to the existing $8 per month Premium subscription, which now occupies the middle tier.
The most affordable subscription from X is now the Basic tier, priced at $3 per month. Subscribers at this level will enjoy the ability to edit their posts, create longer posts and videos, undo posts, access the Reader for distraction-free consumption of longer posts, enable background video playback, download videos, and receive a modest boost in replies. Basic subscribers can also utilize SMS two-factor authentication and benefit from encrypted direct messages (DMs). On the customization front, users can change app icons, create bookmark folders, personalize navigation and themes, highlight their best posts in a dedicated profile tab, and hide their likes and subscriptions. Notably, the Basic tier does not include the checkmark or ID verification.
– no ads in For You or Following
– largest boost for your replies (vs other Premium tiers or unverified users)
– access to our full suite of creator tools

The Premium tier remains available at $8 per month, offering everything included in the Basic subscription, plus additional perks. Premium subscribers experience fewer ads in their “For You” and “Following” feeds, a more substantial boost in replies, the coveted checkmark (with the option to hide it), ID verification, and access to the Creator Hub. This hub allows users to monetize their posts and earn money from followers who subscribe to their content. Premium subscribers also gain access to analytics, as well as X Pro and Media Studio.
Lastly, the new Premium+ tier, priced at $16 per month, encompasses all the features of the Premium tier but goes a step further. Subscribers at this level enjoy an ad-free experience in both the “For You” and “Following” sections and the most significant boost in replies.
