How Twitter killed a writer's income
Here’s an interesting read from a US-based writer about the impact of the recent changes at X, formerly Twitter, has had on her earning power.

            The writer had built a sizeable following on Twitter over the last ten years, but after Elon Musk’s takeover “I am struggling to reach more than a few dozen people at a time— across Twitter and a handful of other social platforms—as I live-blog another historic Texas legislative event: the impeachment of Attorney General Ken Paxton.”

            “Twitter’s degradation is already having significant consequences not only for highly clouted super-users with millions of followers, but for what I think of as the “workhorses” of the platform. People like me: the writers, academics, journalists, and content creators who once camped out on the app most days following the news, the jokes, and the general conversation.”
