Elon Musk announces $8 subscription fees for Twitter Blue Tick

Elon Musk said Blue Tick will be available only via subscription for $8 per month, after previous concerns that the price would be $20. It is still unclear whether this price of $8 per month was set following the exchange between the world's richest man and legendary author Stephen King.

According to Musk, the $8 figure applies to the US and will be adjusted according to purchasing power parity globally. Approximately Rs 200 in India would be a reasonable estimate.

Musk has announced the other advantages of a blue tick, including half as many ads, can post longer videos, and being prioritized in mentions, replies, and searches.

With these changes, according to reports, Musk has announced 84hrs work weeks to complete yet-to-be-fully-announced goals within an as-of-yet unspecified deadline.

Conflicting reports have circulated about Musk's firing and hiring plans, even as senior executives continue to drop out.

Musk wants to reassure advertisers that their media won't be displayed alongside subversive and/or illegal text and images while tackling the platform's already relatively lax moderation.
