Social network X, formerly known as Twitter, has announced that it is launching a monetization program for content creators who will be able to earn ad revenue if they meet certain criteria.

Monetization program for bloggers

According to an official statement, X has launched an advertising revenue sharing program for content creators. Earlier this month, the company paid certain amounts to individual authors, but now all users who meet the specified criteria can apply to participate in the program, which is done from the monetization tab in the settings.

To participate in the program, users must have an X Blue or Verified Organization subscription, at least 15 million post views in the last three months, and at least 500 subscribers.

The Company has decided to make participation in this program as easy as possible so that all eligible users can receive a share of the revenue if they meet the eligibility criteria and join the program.

How the amount of payments will be determined is not yet known, but it is known that authors will receive payments if they earn more than 50 dollars.

Rebranding, logo update and new issues

Let's remind that last week the social network was rebranded and changed its name to X. The updated logo with a laconic "X" symbol on a black background appeared both on the platform and on the roof of the company's headquarters in San Francisco. And this has already caused certain problems.

As reported by NBC News, San Francisco authorities have stated that Musk has violated US laws because of the giant X logo on the roof of the company's headquarters in the center of the city.

In addition, according to Bleeping Computer, Twitter's rebranding to X has resulted in users visiting the social network site with the Microsoft Edge browser, the browser sends a warning about the security risk. The problem, it turns out, was that during the process of renaming Twitter to X, the logo with bird was replaced with a Unicode character that looks like the letter X, but in a mathematical context means an arbitrary metric space. The Microsoft Edge browser saw this as a potential security risk and started showing a warning.

Increase in active users

Despite all this, according to Elon Musk, the number of active users of X social network is growing. According to him, the number of active users is already more than 541 million people, and this does not include the share of bots. This is a new record for the social network since the beginning of this year.

Meanwhile, Mark Zuckerberg's Threads app, which competes with X, had 100 million downloads in its first week of launch, but more than half of users soon lost interest in the platform.
