XWire: X’s Newswire Service to Take on Cision’s PR Newswire

In an all-hands meeting, X CEO Linda Yaccarino and owner Elon Musk discussed the future plans for the platform. Musk sees YouTube and LinkedIn as future competitors and wants to turn X into an “everything app.” As part of this vision, X is launching XWire, a newswire service to publish press releases, columns, and news stories. The goal is to rival Cision’s PR Newswire.

Expanding into video and hiring

X is already making progress in its plans for video and hiring. The platform now offers audio and video calling for iOS users and allows verified users to upload up to 2-hour long videos, challenging YouTube. X also introduced a jobs listing service to directly compete with LinkedIn.

Impressive numbers

Despite previous reports of a decline in visitors, X announced that it has reached 100 billion impressions per day and sees over half a billion posts published on the platform daily.
