Our first question is, why didn’t Elon Musk buy Twitter from day one? And our second question, will you let us tell you how to collect this money or not?
Elon Musk has done a lot of things with Twitter, but none has gotten the attention of Nigerian users quite like the recent payout. Now, everyone is keen on how to make money on X.
On July 13, X announced a Creator Ads Revenue Sharing Program that allows creators on the platform to earn their share of ad revenue on the platform.

In case you’re thinking of how to cash out on your X account while putting out banger content, this guide has got you covered.
At the moment, there are two ways to earn from X:
Consistently put out content and have a cumulative of at least 15 million impressions within the last three months
Have at least 500 followers on your X account
Once you’ve reached the eligibility criteria, you can proceed to the steps below:
Create a Stripe account (an online payment app similar to Paypal) to get payouts of $50 and above.
Adhere to X’s Ad Revenue Share Terms
To set up monetisation:
- Go to the “monetization” section in your menu, and you’ll have access to the ads revenue-sharing options if you’re eligible (subscribe to Blue)
- Click or tap the “Join and setup payouts” option
- Fill in your Stripe account details.
With creator subscriptions, you can provide exclusive content to paying subscribers on your X account. But just like with the Ads Revenue Sharing Program, you also have to meet some eligibility criteria.
- You must be 18 and above
- Have at least 500 followers
- Your account must have been active in the last 30 days
Once you meet the eligibility criteria, you can register via the X subscription section.
If your application is approved, you can charge $2.99, $4.99 or $9.99 monthly to provide the following types of exclusive content:
- Exclusive tweets for your subscribers
- Subscriber badges for your subscribers
- Subscription links that allow you to invite more subscribers
- Subscriber-only Spaces for paying followers only.
You’ll also have access to a subscriber tab that helps you monitor content and members. (This is only available on iOS.)
At the moment, both earning options are available to users globally as long as you’re subscribed to Blue.
Some Nigerian X users have already received ad-revenue payouts with people getting as much as ₦400k. If you’ve been sleeping on how to make money on X, here’s your call to wise up.
