Blue tick on Twitter to be made chargeable
User verification process will be amended by Twitter, as stated by Elon Musk, in a tweet.
He tweeted: “Whole verification process is being revamped right now.” Twitter is right now thinking of charging an amount for the blue check mark which verifies the identity of its account holder. The report said that with the project moving forward, Twitter Blue would have to be subscribed to at $4.99 per month, otherwise the users will lose their verified badges.
A final decision has still not been made by the CEO of Tesla. In June last year, Twitter Blue was launched as the first subscription service of the platform, offering exclusive access to the premium features, on a monthly subscription basis which includes a feature to edit tweets. According to a Twitter poll, more than 70% said that they wanted an edit option. It was also requested by Musk that the users who were logged out be redirected to the Explore Page, showing trending tweets.
