Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, announced on Friday that subscribers can upload podcasts, TV shows or films on X, formerly known as Twitter, and make money through monetisation.

The tech entrepreneur responded to his sister Tosca Musk, who is a co-founder of the streaming site Passionflix, by stating that users can now upload their full-length films to X.

“Post your movies, TV series or podcasts on this platform and monetise by turning on subscriptions,” said Elon.

Tosca posted: “Love that people are watching my movies here on X.”

One user even proposed that X allow them to collect a one-time fee for posting clips.

“This way people can buy the movie without having to buy a subscription. X becomes a genuine movie platform,” the user commented.

“X would need a seriously revamped video-playing mechanism though. Would love to see that happen,” another posted.

Moreover, Elon Musk also announced to his fans that the "AI Audiences" capability would be available shortly.

“Briefly describe the target audience for your ads and our AI systems will generate a pool of the most relevant X users to target in seconds,” he elaborated.
