Elon Musk said it will cost users $8 per month to verify on the platform.
Elon Musk It has officially taken over Twitter and has already started rolling out the changes.
The Tesla CEO has announced that he would like to charge Twitter users a monthly fee of $7.99 to get a verified checkmark on the social media platform.
“Get Twitter Blue if you sign up now. Blue checkmark: Power for people. Your account will get a blue checkmark, just like the celebrities, companies, and politicians you follow,” read a statement, at New York Post.
However, just talking about these changes was enough to anger many celebrities and politicians, and now they are speaking out against Musk and his decision to charge verified accounts.
Valerie Bertinelli— who initially started trending early Sunday because she changed her Twitter profile picture to one of Musk — wrote, “A blue check mark simply means your identity has been verified. Scammers will have a harder time impersonating you. This is no longer valid.” Good luck there!”
She is later He confessed That she did not intend to go viral due to the parody stunt and brought back her profile picture to become one of them.
“I enjoyed my time and thought I made my point,” she wrote in a separate tweet, “I’m not just a ‘popular’ type girl. Safe Sunday everyone! xo”
King Stephen Ren also, expressing his disgust first at a tweet Shared on Halloween it cited an earlier report that Must was seeking up to $20 a month to check, “$20 a month to keep the blue check? Gone like Enron.”
Musk replied, “We need to pay the bills somehow! Twitter can’t rely entirely on advertisers. How about $8?”
“I’ll explain the rationale in a longer form before doing this,” Musk continued. “It’s the only way to defeat bots and trolls.”
Then follow the king with musk not once, but twice. Or not writingGlory to Elon Musk, who started a revolution in how the world is driven and has amazing visionary talents. I got an early Tesla and traded in for another one. Great cars (no autopilot for me, thanks). That said, when it comes to Twitter…”
In a third tweet, King WroteMusk makes me think of Tom Sawyer, who was given the task of whitewashing the fence as a punishment. Tom surrounded his friends with doing chores for him, and getting them to pay for the privilege. That’s what Musk wants to do with Twitter. No no no.
Representative 14 New YorkThe tenth region, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortezhe also had a few things to say, “Yoelonmusk while I’m getting your attention, why do people only pay $8 for their app to crash when they say something you don’t like? This is what my app looked like since my tweet annoyed you yesterday. What’s good? It doesn’t seem to me Very frank talk.”
Mark Ruffalo He wasn’t afraid to comment on the issue either, and responded directly to Ocasio-Cortez, writing“Elon. Please — for the love of decency — stay off Twitter, hand the keys to someone who does this as an actual job, and keep running Tesla and SpaceX. You’re destroying your credibility. It’s not a good look.”

In a tweet responding to Musk, Ruffalo supported his view on why the blue check mark is needed, writingThat’s why having powerful disinformation filters and trusted users has been a popular feature for people and advertisers alike. We need these safeguards to make sure it’s accurate information, or the app loses credibility, as you do. And people leave.”
Despite the concerns, Musk still says he plans to bring pay-to-play to his platform, but not as quickly as he had previously hoped.
According to the post The New York Times In the report, the Twitter CEO won’t roll out the new verification until after the November 8 midterm elections.
