Twitter may charge users $20 per month to be verified

Twitter’s New “Chief Tweet” Elon Musk reportedly considering verification of a Twitter Blue convenience, as well as quadruple the cost of the subscription service. This would essentially mean that users would have to pay a monthly $20 fee to have their blue tick badge.

Predictably, many users have indicated that they just want to be unverified.

Twitter’s new Musk era began last week, with fast firing And slurs in a nail A sign of significant change for the company. platformer First reported Sunday that Twitter may soon require users to have a paid subscription to Twitter Blue to maintain their verified status. Twitter gives verifiable accounts a small checkmark badge to authenticate their identity to others, and currently only demands the mental cost of being at Hellsight.

on top of this, The Verge reports There are also plans to increase the price of Twitter Blue subscription Already increased $4.99 monthly cost Up to $19.99 per month. It’s the same price as a premium Netflix subscription, but with clearly worse content.

Twitter’s proposed changes may allow that are not verified necessarily Buy the coveted blue tick badge, Currently, Twitter only offers verified status notable accounts From “principally recognized person or brand”. If that changes, it’s possible that anyone who meets the other two criteria of being active on Twitter and verifying their identity will be able to get verified. This could potentially be useful in fighting misinformation and impersonation.

Unfortunately, the $19.99 per month Blue Tick fee takes away a lot of the glare from the appeal.

Once Twitter’s new policy is in place, users will have 90 days to subscribe or lose their blue tick. It is currently unclear what will happen to verified users in countries where Twitter Blue is unavailable, i.e. any countries that are not US, Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, It’s also unclear whether Musk has actually considered it.

It also enables accounts Use NFT as your profile pictureBecause if you’re paying for Twitter there’s no zero chance of you joining it too crypto, Even after adding verification, none of it seems worth the expense.

It’s annoying that features like the editing function just aren’t included in Twitter’s default product, but at least it’s always been a paid feature. Musk’s proposal to replace Twitter’s verification system would lock a previously free feature behind a paywall — a move that never won anyone’s goodwill.

Musk’s reactions to a proposed change to Twitter’s verification system have been derisive, to say the least.

Aside from the wildly unpopularity of these changes, the way Musk has been outspoken about implementing them won’t win over many of his friends either. As The Verge reports, Twitter employees were reportedly told on Sunday that they would be given less than 10 days to do so if the new Twitter Blue pricing and verification system is not implemented by November 7. Will go Work-life balance on Twitter has probably taken a big hit.

Musk thinks his transition to Twitter Blue will help boost the company’s profits. Yet if Twitter makes verification a paid feature, it’s likely that many accounts will eliminate their verified status without any regrets. instead of this fighting propagandaThe blue tick badge will become just a signpost indicating exactly which sucker has signed up to pay $19.99 a month on Twitter.

Mashable has reached out to Twitter for comment.
