Elon Musk declared that X users will have free access to Premium services if they have more than 2,500 verified subscriber followers. Additionally, he mentioned that Premium+ services will be free for X users who have more than 5,000 followers. According to the membership options, you may use GrokAI, Elon Musk’s ChatGPT-like chatbot, and enjoy an ad-free experience as well as other capabilities, like the ability to edit tweets. Grok was previously only accessible with an X Premium+ subscription, which costs ₹1,300 a month or ₹13,600 annually.

What did Elon Musk say about the recent alteration?

“Going forward, all accounts with over 2500 verified subscriber followers will get Premium features for free and accounts with over 5000 will get Premium+ for free.” Tweeted Elon Musk after disclosing the information on X, formerly Twitter.

What about the accessibility of GrokAI?

This follows the billionaire’s earlier this week confirmation that GrokAI will also be available to Premium customers. The business previously stated that it models the chatbot after The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. It intends for the chatbot to respond to customers’ inquiries with humor and a “rebellious streak.”

What is the reason behind Elon Musk’s decision?

Since assuming control of Twitter (later rebranded as x) in 2022, Elon Musk has concentrated on getting users to pay a membership fee in order to boost the social media network’s earnings. Elon Musk already terminated a legacy verified program that granted famous people a complimentary blue tick. Rather, everyone who paid for the company’s premium subscription received a blue tick.
