Elon Musk’s paid Twitter verification system to roll out next week: report
Elon Musk’s paid Twitter verification system is set to roll out next week, and the Tesla CEO is wasting no time getting the social media company up and running.
The paid Twitter verification badges are part of Musk’s plans to discourage fake accounts and generate some revenue for the social media platform. It was told by people familiar with the matter Bloomberg Twitter verification badges can be obtained for an $8 monthly subscription next Monday, November 7th. Although Elon Musk has stated that the badges of the blue brands “will be adjusted according to the country according to the parity of the purchasing power”.
Twitter users with a blue verification badge have a grace period of many months. It’s unclear how many months verified Twitter users spend before the social media company collects badges. Verified Twitter users can choose to pay to keep the badge or lose it.
Twitter users who pay for the blue verification badge get priority in replies, mentions and searches. They can also post longer videos and audio files. Verified Twitter users also receive fewer ads.
This week, Twitter plans to give all its users access to the editing feature. Currently, the editing feature is only available to Twitter Blue users, who pay $4.99 per month.
It’s Elon Musk now Twitter’s sole director, and he wastes no time putting the company in shape. Badges and the edit button are the first changes/improvements Musk wants to introduce to Twitter. In the long term, the Tesla CEO plans to use Twitter to get an X launch, a platform that could be similar to WeChat in China.
