Elon Musk’s X (formerly Twitter) has started paying off many content creators at a time when they try to bring on more creators to the platform as well as raise more revenue.
One of the kind to share the joy was the user, @oluwapundittt who shared a screenshot of his $12,634.24 (UGX 47.5 million). He could not hold on to the joy but rather add a caption, “The man captioned the screenshot, “”Elon Musk clap for yourself”
Users who subscribed to Twitter Blue and managed to earn more than five million tweet impressions each month for the last three months are eligible to earn a share of the pie.
This first publicly reported African follows others like Billy Markus, the co-creator of the Dogecoin cryptocurrency, who received a payout amounting to a whopping $37,050 and writer Brian Krassenstein with over 750,000 followers that was paid almost $25,000.
Ever since taking over Twitter, Musk has been seeking new avenues to raise money as well as bring more creators to the platform. The payout comes at a crucial time when Meta has opened Twitter rival Threads to counter the hegemony of the bird app.
Many experts have claimed that Threads might be a Twitter killer but with the news of payouts spreading across social media like wildfire, more content creators will be looking to join the bandwagon.
