There’s a spread of instruments that already offer you entry to this, and if X may incorporate the identical capabilities natively, and with knowledge direct from its servers, utilizing the total firehose of X posts, that would properly be well 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 can be, however there may be alternative right here, which may give X’s subscription initiatives a giant push.
