Elon Musk has announced a new change in his social media platform X. He said that now only verified users will be able to participate in the poll. This is done so that Twitter polls don’t get spammed by bots.
There are many polls conducted on X (Twitter) by companies as well as individuals to gather information about a particular topic and people participate in them. It is common on X to conduct polls related to political, economic, memes or any other information. However, in future, only those users who have subscribed to X Blue will be able to participate in these polls.
In a blog post X wrote that users will soon be able to join audio and video calls on the platform. If you are a X user, you will get the facility to connect with your contacts through calls without sharing the phone number. However, this feature is still under work and soon you will be able to use this service through an update.
Elon Musk wants to turn the X platform into an everything app where facilities like audio/video calling and payment are available. That’s why many new changes are being made on X from data storage to political ad policy. The company has also changed its data collection policy so that it will also collect your biometrics information, job and education history.
