Removing the title of articles in X; Elon Musk’s sweeping changes continue
Elon Musk has said that to improve the visual beauty of X, from now on the title and introduction of articles will not be displayed on this platform.
If you, like many other Internet users, use the X social network to follow news and publications, you have probably noticed the unique appearance of the posts in it. This platform, which operated under the popular name of Twitter in the not-so-distant past, has now started the process of removing headlines.
About two months ago, it was said that the X was in the process of making extensive exterior changes. At that time, Elon Musk, the CEO of X, announced that he had come up with the main idea of the changes and that these changes could improve the visual beauty of the platform.
Engadget reporters have posted a link to an article from their website on X to review the changes. According to their claim, the headline and news related to the link sent in the iOS version have been removed; But in the underweb version of X, you can still access the headline section and related content. Zoomit’s reviews show that the titles have disappeared in the Web X version as well.
According to published reports, it seems that advertising agencies and companies that used to broadcast their ads on X do not like the new feature of this social network; But Elon Musk has applied new changes regardless of these margins and in order to reduce the volume of posts and display more posts in the timeline. In general, Elon Musk believes that removing the header can prevent users from falling into the trap of yellow links.
However, Elon Musk still prefers to introduce “visual beauty” as the main reason behind the recent changes; But it is no secret that his ultimate goal of these changes is to encourage and encourage users to post longer content on X.
One of Elon Musk’s first actions after taking over Twitter and changing its name to X was to design subscription plans to make the most of this platform. Now you have to buy a subscription to have the famous X blue tick. Another advantage of the X subscription is the reduction of the character limit of posts to 25,000.
Elon Musk recently announced in one of his tweets that journalists should publish their desired content directly on X in order to have more freedom of action and increase their income by publishing news. After all, Musk is very interested in citizen journalism and publishing live videos of users on X, and he has encouraged users of this platform to do this several times.
