Elon Musk to charge $19.99 a month for Twitter-verified Users to stay verified or lose badge

Date:

Elon Musk plans to make Twitter-verified Users Pay $19.99 monthly to keep their verified status.

Twitter accounts that already have the verification, will have to comply with this new mechanism and pay up for the blue tick.

This comes just days after Elon Musk took charge of Twitter, he is reportedly working towards some other major changes.

Twitter Blue was introduced last year and it is an opt-in, paid monthly subscription that offers exclusive access to premium features.

The subscription service has been launched in the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

This is part of a premium service that will be rolled out under Elon Musk’s leadership, according to a report.

“The whole verification process is being revamped right now,” Musk, who took over as the CEO of the social media platform Friday, October 28, tweeted Sunday, October 30.

The company also plans to raise its optional $4.99-a-month premium subscription called Twitter Blue to $19.99 a month. However, that price is subject to change, The Verge reported, citing internal correspondence and people familiar with the matter.

Twitter will add more features, including verification, to bring its subscription up to par with the cost hike.

Existing verified users have 90 days to subscribe to the new Twitter Blue after its launch or they’ll lose their blue checkmarks, according to The Verge.

The current Twitter Blue launched about a year ago and offers subscribers a way to view ad-free articles from some publishers as well as additional customization settings.

Musk has been outspoken about his desire to grow subscription numbers to account for half of Twitter’s revenue as well as his eagerness to overhaul the platform’s verification process.
