Twitter users will soon be asked to pay to use a ‘new’ version of Tweetdeck beginning next month, the company announced Monday.

The Story: Twitter says the ‘new’ version of TweetDeck with new features will be behind a paywall, forcing users to subscribe to Twitter Blue within 30 days to access it.

  • All users will be forced to switch over to the new version, according to two Twitter employees.
  • Tweetdeck, which had previously been free, is used by businesses and news organizations to monitor content in an organized manner.
  • The new version of the app has been in preview mode for nearly two years.
  • Twitter users must $8 per month to verify their account, while organizations pay $1,000 per month.

What’s new: The news comes just days after Musk said that both verified and unverified users would have a limited number of posts they could read per day.

  • Musk said the move was made “to address extreme levels of data scraping & system manipulation.”
  • The social media website has come under fire since Musk’s takeover, from chronic misinformation to users feeling unsafe on the platform, looking for alternatives to move to.
