Twitter recently acquired Scroll which is a subscription-based service that removes advertisements from news sites. Twitter acquired Scroll in light of improving the reading experience for users.

Scroll is a service that provides readers what they want, that is clean, ad-free reading across the web. Twitter will be integrating Scroll in a paid-subscription plan where users can Scroll Twitter without seeing any advertisements or spam.
Twitter’s VP of Product, Mike Park, confirms Scroll will be a part of the company’s upcoming subscription service; “We plan to include Scroll as part of an upcoming subscription offering we’re currently exploring. As a Twitter subscriber, picture getting access to premium features where you can easily read articles from your favorite news outlet or a writer’s newsletter from Revue, with a portion of your subscription going to the publishers and writers creating the content”.
