Elon Musk, Twitter’s new “Chief Twit,” is reportedly planning to include Twitter verification to Twitter Blue while also increasing the cost of the monthly subscription. In fact, this would involve charging consumers a $20 monthly charge to maintain their blue tick badge. As the platform’s first subscription service, Twitter Blue was introduced in June of last year. It provides “exclusive access to premium features” on a monthly subscription basis, including the ability to edit tweets. Additionally, the option to edit tweets was made accessible earlier this month as a consequence of Musk’s insistence on conducting a Twitter poll to assess the preferences of his tens of millions of followers in April. ” Yes,” votes reached almost 70%.
According to the tech publication Platformer, the CEO of Tesla intends to increase the $4.99 monthly cost of Twitter’s Blue premium service to $19.99. Users who have been apply for Twitter verification by the platform and have a blue tick recognizing them as reliable sources would have 90 days to join Blue or risk losing their check mark. Though Musk did not explicitly respond to the news.
However, Musk tweeted on Sunday to his more than 110 million followers that “The whole verification process is being revamped right now”.
The proposed modifications to Twitter account may make it possible for users who aren’t verified to effectively buy the coveted blue tick in Twitter. Twitter now only recognises notable accounts that come from “prominently recognised individuals or brands” as verified Twitter accounts. Anyone who meets the other two Twitter verification requirements of being active on Twitter account and confirming their identity will probably pay to get verified on Twitter if the change is approved. Fighting misinformation and impersonation may be aided by this.
He also drew attention to a Monday morning Twitter poll that asked people to choose one of four alternatives: $5, $10, $15, or “wouldn’t pay” in exchange for a blue tick per month. A group assembled by Musk to assist in running the company after the $44 billion acquisition includes tech investor Jason Calacanis, a close friend of Musk. Netflix’s entry-level plan is $6.99 (£4.99 UK) per month.
Since the takeover, Musk’s goals for Twitter have primarily been demonstrated through his Twitter account. Musk posted a poll on Monday asking users if he should bring back Vine, the video-sharing app. That was seen as a precursor to TikTok but was discontinued by Twitter in 2016. This is another indication that the firm is about to undergo a significant transformation.
In addition, users will have 90 days to subscribe when Twitter’s new rule goes into effect or they will lose their blue tick.
What will happen for verification of my Twitter Account in nations where Twitter Blue is not available?
That is any nation other than the US, Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, is still unknown. Also unknown whether Musk has given this much attention.
In a discussion with YouTube star Mr. Beast, Musk said that competing with TikTok would be the driving force for the move. Mr. Beast responded, “If you did that and actually competed with TikTok that’d be hilarious.” What might he be doing to improve it over TikTok, Musk asked. 230 million people use Twitter, but over 1 billion people utilise TikTok.
After tweeting an internal message from a top employee in May 2022 on Monday morning, Elon Musk and his group also appear to be examining internal messages made by employees in the lead-up to the takeover.
In addition, he has promised to maintain content regulations and bans on limited accounts until a Twitter content moderation committee.
