Currently, Elon Musk is working on Twitter Blue, an optional $4.99 monthly subscription offering premium features. Musk plans to charge $19.99 per month for the Twitter Blue subscription and include the Blue verification feature.
In addition, users who are currently verified would have 90 days to subscribe to Twitter Blue or lose their blue checkmark. Elon Musk reportedly intends to fire employees working on the project if they fail to meet the November 7 deadline.
While people have been supportive of Elon Musk’s efforts to make changes to Twitter, including solving the problem of bots. Twitterati have criticized the decision to charge $20 for a subscription and verification. This means that anyone with $20 can be verified and still send spam or scams.
