Remember those days when Twitter was just a platform for witty tweets and heated threads? Well, hold onto your hashtags, because things are about to get a whole lot more personal! X (formerly Twitter) is finally rolling out audio and video calls to everyone, not just Premium users. That’s right, you can now chat face-to-face (or voice-to-voice) with your favorite followers, industry peers, or even those random accounts you love to playfully banter with.

But wait, there’s more! X understands that not everyone wants their phone blowing up with calls. That’s why they’ve given you complete control over who can reach you. ️
