Elon Musk’s Twitter Plan for Media Publishers to Charge Users Per-Article: Pros and Cons

On Saturday, billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk announced on Twitter a plan for his social media platform to allow media publishers to charge users on a per-article basis with a single click.

According to Musk, this plan enables users who would not sign up for a monthly subscription to pay a higher per-article price for when they want to read an occasional article, which should be a win-win situation for both media organisations and the public.
