If you want your tweets to appear in the timelines of strangers, Twitter is offering testing a plan to automatically promote your tweets, for which you will have to pay $99 month.
However, this subscription plan is not offered to all users, but only those invited can avail this option.
"You just need to continue using Twitter as you normally do - tweeting updates, links, and media that you want a larger audience to see. Then, the promotion of your tweets will be automated," the blog post read.
Twitter now has 328 million monthly active users (MAUs) -- the same number it reported in the first quarter of 2017.
Globally, in the first quarter of 2017, Twitter streamed more than 800 hours of live premium video from content partners across over 450 events, reaching 45 million unique viewers -- an increase of 31 per cent from the fourth quarter of 2016.
According to a report in Engadget, this is a clear experiment to try out a new source of cash flow for Twitter, which saw a drop in advertising revenue this year, making $439 million in second quarter, compared to $535 million in the same period last year.
