Elon Musk says $8 monthly fee for Twitter blue tick

Elon Musk has said Twitter will charge $8 monthly to Twitter users who want a blue tick by their name indicating a verified account. "Power to the people! Blue for $8/month," the billionaire said on Twitter, criticising the old method of blue tick verification as a "Lords and peasants system". Twitter's former method of verifying users for a blue tick included a short online application form, and was reserved for those whose identities were targets for impersonation, such as celebrities, politicians and journalists. On Monday, one of the world's biggest advertising companies, IPG, advised its clients to suspend Twitter adverts for a week, citing a need for more clarity on the Twitter's plans to ensure "Trust and safety" on the platform. The charge for blue tick privileges drew scepticism after original reports that said the charge would be $20 monthly.
