When you’re nonetheless utilizing TweetDeck, you’re truly not, with the platform now renamed XPro as a part of the broader rebrand on the app.
The content material administration instrument, which is about to turn into an XBlue exclusive, just lately acquired an improve, with the X crew including numerous components of the TweetDeck Preview, which was initially previewed in July 2021, into the primary app.
These upgrades embrace:

However together with these bulletins got here the information that XPro would turn into an XBlue unique in 30 days, which signifies that from this week, XPro shall be a paid-only operate, although the corporate can also be planning so as to add in new components that may make it a extra worthwhile funding for enterprise customers and creators.
Which could possibly be a viable pathway to driving extra subscription income for the app.
As I’ve noted previously, there’s a variety of third-party X/Twitter administration instruments that supply higher performance than XPro and the accessible analytics choices throughout the app. Or possibly I ought to say ‘there was’, as a few of them have been compelled to shutter as a result of X’s higher API price tiers.
However there’s a heap of performance that X might add. Profile information comparisons, submit sentiment evaluation, profile bio insights, energetic occasions. There’s a spread of instruments that already offer you entry to this, and if X might incorporate the identical capabilities natively, and with information direct from its servers, utilizing the complete firehose of X posts, that would nicely be definitely worth the cash to put money into XPro entry for a lot of customers.
It stays to be seen what the approaching additions for the platform shall be, however there’s alternative right here, which might give X’s subscription initiatives an enormous push.
