Elon Musk will let you pay $8 to be a verified ‘lord’ on Twittersource • theverge.com
Mitchell Clark and Jay Peters:
Elon Musk has announced that a new version of Twitter Blue will include some sort of verification accessible for $8 per month in the US, with the price “adjusted by country proportionate to purchasing power parity.” He announced the shake-up of the premium service by saying that “Twitter’s current lords & peasants system for who has or doesn’t have a blue checkmark is bullshit.”
Musk also says that the service will get you:
Priority in replies, mentions, and search, which Musk argues is “essential to defeat spam/scam”
Ability to post long video and audio
Half as many ads
How about including better image quality for posts? The compression on images is so God awful.
