Twitter Blue Drops Ad-Free Articles →

Ben Lovejoy:

One of the Twitter Blue perks was ad-free access to more than 300 US publishers through a deal known as Ad-Free Articles.

Twitter would pay publishers an amount roughly equivalent to the ad revenue for a view, and in return subscribers would be able to read pieces on Twitter Blue Publisher sites without ads.

Twitter has cancelled this feature overnight, with just one day’s notice. Publishers were sent an email announcing the change.

Between this and its Pay-to-be-Verified plans, New Twitter is already a lot less friendly with publishers and journalists. What a shock.
