Elon Musk today announced his plan to charge verified users $8 per month for blue tick on Twitter – the social platform that he acquired at the end of October. Twitter’s blue tick are now easier than ever to own, for just one price.
“Twitter’s current lords & peasants system for who has or doesn’t have a blue checkmark is bullshit. Power to the people! Blue for $8/month”, said Elon Musk.
In addition to the blue tick, users can also pay extra for other Twitter Blue perks like prioritizing responses, limiting ads, or posting longer video and audio files. “This will also give Twitter a revenue stream to reward content creators”, the billionaire added.
The above plan is supported by some, while others expressed concern about how quick it is to get a green tick will blind scammers. However, not long after, Elon Musk continued to comment: “To all complainers, please continue complaining, but it will cost $8”.
A source said that Elon Musk gave Twitter employees an ultimatum on October 30, if they don’t sign up for Twitter Blue by November 7, they will be fired.
Twitter Blue went public nearly a year ago as a way to block ads and provide more exclusive features for account holders. Twitter’s earnings reports for the past few quarters show that advertising still makes up the majority of the company’s revenue. It seems Musk is looking to boost Twitter Blue subscriptions to grow to be a pillar of the company’s complete income.
Elon Musk completed the $44 billion deal to own Twitter at the end of October. Shortly after taking over as temporary CEO of Twitter, Elon Musk fired top executives from the company. The deal shaked the crypto market, DOGE skyrocketed and a series of shitcoins were also created.
