Elon Musk proposes change to Twitter Blue after getting board seat


Elon Musk has been in the news ever since it was revealed that he bought a 9.2% stake in Twitter, which makes him the company’s largest shareholder. Previously it was a poll about the possibility of an edit button and now it is Twitter Blue.

The Tesla CEO, in a series of tweets, has suggested several changes to Twitter Blue. For those unaware, Twitter Blue is a paid monthly subscription service that provides exclusive access to premium features that enable users to customize their Twitter experience. The service is available on OS and Android in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, and on twitter.com, it costs $2.99 ​​(Rs 227) per month.

Now, the founder of The Boring Company suggests that the cost of the service should be around $2 (Rs 152 per month). They have also suggested that the service should be suspended without any refund for accounts that use the service to scam and spam people. Musk wrote in a tweet, “Price should probably be ~$2/month, but paid 12 months ago and account didn’t get checkmark for 60 days (look for CC chargeback) and suspended without refund Went.” ,


In addition, Musk suggests that everyone who signs up for Twitter Blue should receive an authentication check mark that turns away scammers and people trying to game the system. Musk says these checkmarks should be distinct from public figures or official accounts. “It must go away or scammers will only sabotage the system by signing up for a few months,” he said.


Finally, Musk recommends that no advertising be present on Twitter Blue. “If Twitter depends on advertising money to survive, the policy-making power of corporations is greatly increased,” Musk said.
