Elon Musk Charges $125 In line with Month For The Twitter Blue Tick Badge

Twitter Inc will charge 8 US dollars for its Blue service.

Al Jazeera quoted them as including the ‘blue tick’ or verified badge.

This notification was delivered by the new boss of Twitter, Elon Musk.

The move is an attempt by Musk to monetize the Twitter service and make the social media network less dependent on advertising.

“Blue (blue) for $8/month,” Musk said in a tweet.

He added that prices would be adjusted for “countries proportionate to purchasing power parity”.

Get priority

Musk said blue tick subscribers will get priority in replies, mentions and searches.

Another advantage is that you can post longer videos and audio.

Blue tick subscribers can also enjoy the feature of less dealing with ads.

He also offers customers a bypass paywall from “publishers willing to work with us”.

Musk’s comments follow media reports that Tesla bosses are looking at the profile verification process and how the blue ticks are being given.

Blue tick first for important profiles based on certain criteria

Twitter used to distribute blue ticks to important profiles based on its own criteria.

However, more than 80 percent of Twitter users who took part in a recent poll said they would not pay for a blue tick.

Meanwhile, 10 percent said they were willing to pay $5 per 30 days.

The billionaire completed his $44 billion purchase of the company last week after a lengthy battle that included nearly backing out of the deal and having a legal row.

Twitter already has a subscription service called Twitter Blue.

The service launched in June last year and offers access to features such as the option to edit tweets.

Separately, S&P Global Ratings downgraded Twitter to B- due to a “significant” increase in debt following the acquisition.

Elon Musk officially buys Twitter

Elon Musk officially completed the acquisition of Twitter Inc on Thursday, October 27, 2022.

Elon Musk closes a $44 billion deal to buy Twitter.

After officially acquiring Twitter, Elon Musk’s first step was to change leadership.

Elon Musk begins firing Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal; Head of law, policy and trust Vijaya Gadde; Chief Financial Officer Ned Segal and General Counsel Sean Edgett, quoted from Bloomberg.

Then, shareholders will be paid $54.20 per share.

After that, Twitter will now operate as a private company.

The reason Elon Musk bought Twitter

Elon Musk said the reason for buying Twitter was not to make a lot of money.

Musk claims his goal of buying Twitter is to help humanity, as quoted by the BBC.

Meanwhile, reported by Al Jazeera, according to Elon Musk, Twitter is important for the future of civilization so that differences of opinion can be resolved without debate.
