According to X's support team, the strategy entails charging new, unverified account holders a $1 yearly subscription for making entries and responding to other users' remarks.

The Philippines and New Zealand are the test countries for the model. It is anticipated that the plan will assist in further reducing bot and spam activity as well as "manipulation of our platform." "We don't do this for profit," the business declared.

The testing has no effect on current users.
