Elon Musk at present appeared to verify a plan to cost Twitter customers for account verification, however for $Eight as a substitute of the $20 month-to-month cost he was beforehand floating. “Twitter’s present lords & peasants system for who has or does not have a blue checkmark is bullshit. Energy to the individuals! Blue for $8/month,” Musk tweeted at present.

That is a reference to Twitter Blue, which at the moment prices $4.99 a month and supplies entry to the Undo Tweet possibility and a number of other different options. On Sunday, The Verge reported that Musk ordered staff to lift the worth of Twitter Blue to $19.99 and require anybody with a verified account to subscribe with a view to hold their blue verification checkmark.

The Wall Road Journal later reported that it considered “inside firm correspondence” confirming the plan to cost $19.99 and make account verification contingent on subscribing. Accounts which can be already verified would reportedly lose their verification standing inside 90 days if they do not purchase a subscription.
