In related news, CEO Linda Yaccarino recently revealed that the company has paid nearly $20 million ( over Rs 166 crore) to creators so far. The social media platform started paying creators in July for a share of the ad revenue they earned from ads served in the replies to their posts to other verified users.
“Create. Connect. Collect all on X. We’re enabling the economic success of new segments like creators. And so far we’ve paid out almost $20 million to our creator community,” Yaccarino posted on X.
The first payment in July was around $5 million, according to X owner Elon Musk. Creators are now being incentivised to get users to reply to their tweets. X began paying creators, including in India, their share of ads revenue under its newly launched ‘ads revenue sharing programme’ for creators.
Several creators worldwide have shared how much money they received from the micro-blogging platform via its new programme.
To be eligible for creator ads revenue sharing, you must be subscribed to X Premium or Verified Organisations, have at least 5 million organic impressions on your cumulative posts within the last 3 months and have at least 500 followers.
