Elon Musk Wants Verified Twitter Users To Pay $20 Per Month Or Risk Losing Blue Tick

Elon Musk, the new owner of Twitter, has stated that the verification procedure, which adds a blue tick next to the profile name, is being updated.

When a user complained that he was passed over for the coveted blue tick despite having a sizable following, Musk revealed the strategy in a tweet. The Verge reports that the business will soon charge customers for the blue tick, even if the formal specifics of the new verification method are yet unknown.

The blue tick, which adds additional functionality like editing and undoing tweets, will only be available to Twitter Blue subscribers, the article claims. Additionally, the business apparently intends to raise the Blue fee to $19.99. (roughly ksH 2,000). Users who have already completed the verification process will also have 90 days to sign up for Twitter Blue in order to maintain the blue checkmark on their profile. It is still unknown whether Twitter will modify the regulations to make the verification procedure stricter or softer.

Additionally, the story notes that Twitter engineers have been given a deadline to redesign the Twitter verification process or risk losing their jobs. Though it has only been a week since Musk officially acquired Twitter, he has already let go of a number of important employees. Among those on the list is former CEO Parag Agrawal, who assumed the position in late November of last year. Ned Segal, the CFO of Twitter, and Vijaya Gadda, the head of policy, are among the other well-known people who have lost their jobs.

The report emphasises that the deadline for the new verification, which employees are working on, is November 7.

A different rumour claims that Musk intends to reduce Twitter’s staff in the upcoming days, although the specifics are yet unknown. According to earlier reports, the CEO of Tesla may fire 75% of Twitter employees in order to cut costs. Later on, it was refuted.
