Elon Musk, the owner of online platform X (formerly known as Twitter), has announced that he may introduce a monthly fee for users. This decision is aimed at reducing the presence of bots on the platform. Since taking over X last year, Musk has made several changes, including firing employees, introducing a paid premium option, and reducing content moderation. He has also allowed previously banned accounts, including that of former US president Donald Trump, to be reinstated. In July, Musk revealed that X had lost about half of its advertising revenue. Bots, which are computer-run accounts, are common on X and can be used to spread political messages and hate speech. During a conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Musk discussed the issue of online anti-Semitism and the use of bots to amplify it. Musk suggested that implementing a small monthly payment for using X could help combat bots, as the cost of using them would become higher. This conversation took place amidst a feud between Musk and the Anti-Defamation League, a US-based Jewish organization, over allegations of anti-Semitism. Musk has threatened to sue the ADL for billions of dollars, claiming that their accusations have harmed X’s revenue.
