Twitter has a lot going on thanks to its new owner, but let me say right now that we’re here Droid life Don’t plan to report on every piece of news that comes out of there. There are enough outlets posting about all the crap Elon Musk takes and frankly, I couldn’t care less. However, a reported move on the platform soon directly affected my Twitter account and Droid Life account, so it seems important enough to share.
A report said that it increased through the weekend PlatformerBack up by then edge, Twitter may soon implement a $20/month price bump for Twitter Blue subscriptions to keep accounts verified on the platform. Once the change happens, which could be very soon, accounts will have 90 days to pay $20/month or lose verification.
Musk reportedly set a November 7 deadline for the “feature” to be rolled out, and if the Twitter staff in charge don’t meet that deadline, they will be fired. No, I’m not kidding, that’s what’s being reported.
As it detailed, this $20/month cost would be entirely for Twitter Blue, not just an additional tier for verified users. Instead of $5/month getting you the ability to edit tweets, Twitter Blue will then verify users and give them the coveted blue checkmark and all the other Twitter Blue features. In short, you pay a monthly fee for verification. Depending on how you look at it, you can probably see it as both good and bad. Some see it as a misinformation hellhole, while others see it as a way to buy a status on the platform.
Personally, Twitter can get my verified check back. I don’t care that much. Paying $20/month for that cesspool of toxicity is last on my to-do list. I have gone 33 years without paying Elon Musk directly. I’m going to try and keep at it.
