Elon Musk is announcing something new every day after buying Twitter. This time, Elon Musk instructed Twitter employees to quadruple the Twitter Blue subscription plan price from $4.99 to $19.99. Thus, the cost of the Twitter Blue subscription has almost quadrupled. A Twitter Blue subscription would be the only way to maintain verified user status.
Twitter Blue is a premium version of the site. Users who have Twitter Blue can get benefits. Such as the ability to edit tweets, read articles without ads, and customize the Twitter app icon. In addition, Max says that the upgraded, expensive version will work differently.
All users who previously verified their accounts with the blue check mark free have 90 days to sign up for the new plan and pay $19.99. Otherwise, the verification will be canceled.
Who can be verified?
Before this change, blue ticks on Twitter were reserved for “accounts of public interest.” Such people could be actors, singers, bloggers, journalists, politicians, brands, and others. It usually works so that this kind of verification is needed to index people on the Internet and not make mistakes.
Elon Musk decided to give this possibility to more people. That is, any user can be verified if he only pays the subscription to Twitter Blue. So if you’re willing to pay $19.99 monthly for the Twitter Blue service, you can become verified.
