- Twitter will Enable Users to Offer Subscriptions for their Content
Elon Musk, the CEO of Twitter, recently announced a new feature that allows users to offer exclusive content subscriptions to their followers on the platform. The subscription service includes a variety of options, such as expanded text, long-form videos, exclusive tweets, and live dialogues with subscribers.
To access the subscription feature, users must be above 18 years old, tweet more than 25 times each month, and have at least 500 followers. Eligibility can be confirmed in the “Monetization” section of the user’s settings.
Creators who provide subscription content will receive all of the payments from their subscribers, with the exception of fees charged by platforms like Android and iOS. Twitter will not take any commission during the first twelve months.
Creators have the option to choose their own subscription pricing between $2.99, $4.99, and $9.99 per month. Musk confirmed that Twitter will not keep any of the earnings during the first year.
Overall, Twitter’s new subscription feature offers creators an exciting opportunity to monetize their content and engage with their followers in new ways. Eligible users can access the feature through the “Monetization” tab in their settings and start offering exclusive content to their subscribers today.
- Netskope will launch ZTNA Next to leverage its SASE client
Netskope is set to launch ZTNA Next, a next-generation solution that builds on its zero-trust network access (ZTNA) offering, leveraging the recently unveiled software-based unified secure access service edge (SASE) client. The company claims that ZTNA Next not only enables the full retirement of traditional VPNs, serving all applicable remote application access scenarios, but also supports on-premises use cases such as VoIP.
According to Netskope’s VP Naveen Palavalli, most commercially available ZTNA solutions lack the critical support for some legacy applications that require server-initiated traffic flow, which results in a challenging choice between adopting some ZTNA while still maintaining VPNs for legacy applications. ZTNA Next seeks to overcome these challenges by consolidating separate ZTNA and VPN products with a single agent, ensuring compatibility with legacy applications and enabling users and devices to connect to corporate resources from anywhere.
With ZTNA Next, Netskope aims to prevent tool sprawl and provide a reliable solution that meets all remote access needs, without the need for VPNs. The product is set to be widely available later this year, providing a cost-effective and efficient solution for organizations looking to modernize their remote access capabilities.
