It's even worse than it appears..

  • Journalists and pundits have been doubting that Twitter/Musk can double their revenue with subscriptions. I don't doubt they can because Twitter in all the years they've been around has never even tried to make products that run on their platorm for money. #
  • So here's a Twitter package I'd pay for and so would a lot of other people.#
  • Call it Twitter Pro:#
    • Posts can have titles.#
    • Simple styling.#
    • Links.#
    • Podcasts. #
    • Unlimited length.#
  • $10 per month.#
  • I'd pay. Without a moment's hesitation. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
