If you have a Blue tick in your Twitter account, This post is for you. Musk has plans for a significant adjustment to the verification process on Twitter, even though we have seen it go through many stages since it was made public. Musk intends to charge users USD 19.99 (more than Rs 1600) for the new Twitter Blue subscription, which adds more functionality like editing and undoing tweets, according to a report by The Verge.
Users on Twitter might have to pay to keep their accounts verified
Elon Musk tweeted that Twitter accounts’ verification procedures are being updated. Why do you say that? According to The Verge, it’s possible that Twitter will need a monthly payment from the user in order to continue this verification.
Account verification would be incorporated into Twitter Blue, yes. a monthly subscription that ranged in price from $4.99 to $19.99. That is, you would need to pay a monthly membership of around $20 if you wanted to have your Twitter account verified.
Not Officially Announced Till Date
One thing to keep in mind is that other than Musk’s broad comment, which refers to a renewal in progress, neither these improvements have yet been officially stated nor have they ever been officially implemented.
Be cautious with this information because, as indicated in TC, some fraudsters are using it to send phishing emails. Twitter does not send emails informing users of updates to verified accounts or anything similar.
Returning to Musk’s ambitions, it appears that the notion of charging for account verification is serious as, according to some sources, he has given his staff a deadline to implement this modification to the platform.
However, there are still a lot of specifics about this new approach for verified accounts that need to be clarified. For instance, if account verification were only possible through Twitter Blue, which is only offered in a few countries, this would necessitate expanding the membership globally.
Elon Musk’s approach to this problem and the details of the new account verification procedure will have to be seen in the future.
