Introduced in 2021, Twitter’s Super Follows feature allowed creators to charge money for exclusive tweets. Now, in a rebrand announced by Elon Musk, creators who want to earn money on the platform will have to utilize Subscriptions instead of Super Follows.

The Subscriptions feature includes long-form content and supports “hours-long videos”, according to Elon Musk. Like the previous Super Follows, creators can charge $2.99, $4.99, or $9.99 a month, offering subscriber-only chats in Twitter Spaces, special badges for paid subscribers, and potentially more upcoming features, including newsletters.

A Dubai-based company has completed the initial trials for the UAE’s first driverless trucks. The groundbreaking achievement by Evocargo, partnering with Dubai South, took place at Dubai South Logistics District, and marked a significant step towards incorporating autonomous technologies into the region’s wider logistics infrastructure.

Announced on Wednesday, July 17th, the trials featured the Evocargo N1 unmanned electric truck navigating a predetermined route within a controlled setting. The test involved interactions with common road obstacles such as cars, trucks, and pedestrians, aiming to evaluate the vehicle’s hardware and software reliability, accident prevention systems, and overall readiness for public road use.

Officials were keen to highlight that this accomplishment aligns with the UAE’s ambitious strategy to position itself as a global leader in innovation and technology adoption. The country aims to have 25% of all transportation in Dubai autonomous by 2030, underscoring its commitment to revolutionizing the logistics sector using advanced technologies.

Mohsen Ahmad, CEO of the Logistics District at Dubai South, emphasized the importance of the collaboration with Evocargo in enhancing the region’s logistics capabilities. He noted that autonomous vehicles are set to increase efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and establish a sustainable logistics infrastructure that will benefit both Dubai and the wider UAE.
