Elon Musk Plans To Charge Verified Twitter Users $19.99 Per Month For Blue Tick

The Verge reports that Elon Musk plans to put a $19.99 price tag on Twitter Blue. Already verified accounts will also have to comply with this new mechanism by paying for the blue tick.

Elon Musk’s working on some major changes just days after taking over Twitter. Among the changes are the Twitter Blue subscriptions and even the verification process that gives verified accounts a blue tick. Musk also plans to raise the prices of Twitter Blue subscriptions, which will be linked to the Blue tick. 

According to The Verge, Musk plans to charge $19.99 for a subscription to Twitter Blue and Twitter accounts that have already been verified will have to comply with this new mechanism and pay for the blue tick. As per the report, verified users will have 90 days to transition to Twitter Blue or they will be unable to maintain their checkmark.

Elon Musk has also reportedly given the Twitter employees who are working on this new feature a strict deadline of November 7. If they are unable to meet this deadline, they will have to “pack up and leave.”.

What is Twitter Blue?

Last year, Twitter introduced Twitter Blue, an opt-in, optional paid monthly subscription that offers access to premium features for $4.99. The service allows users to customize their Twitter experience and this subscription service is made available only in the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Musk will likely expand the service internationally while also changing the entire payment structure in the future.

In response to a tweet from a user, Musk wrote: “The whole verification process is being revamped right now.”

The reply came to a Twitter thread in which a venture capitalist, Sriram Krishnan, wrote, “Now that word is out: I’m helping out @elonmusk with Twitter temporarily with some other great people. I believe this is a hugely important company and can have great impact on the world and Elon is the person to make it happen.

Chief Twit recently shared screenshots of internal Twitter conversations showing that he was misled by the board of directors prior to the acquisition being completed. In the screen grab we can hear the security head discussing “fraudulent metrics” being presented. However, there was no mention of bots. Musk has stated that he would be releasing more information soon. 

Elon Musk has expressed displeasure with the company’s management system in response to a tweet. Musk claims that the messiest thing about Twitter is that there are 10 managers for every coder. Having been included in a mailing system that referred him to ‘Managing @Twitter 101’, he himself was solicited to attend this course.
