Twitter has planned to start charging $20 monthly for users to stay verified on the micro blogging platform.
This is part of the premium service that will take place under Elon Musk’s leadership. He said:
“The whole verification process is being revamped right now,”
Musk, who took over as the CEO of the social media platform on Friday, October 28, tweeted Sunday, October 30.
The world’s richest man plans to make verified users pay money to keep their verified status, as the company plans to raise its optional $4.99-a-month premium subscription called “Twitter Blue” to $19.99 a month.
According to “The verge”, existing verified users have 90 days to subscribe to the new Twitter Blue after its launch or they’ll lose their blue checkmarks.
