Twitter Blue price is $8, says Elon Musk

Elon Musk said the premium version of Twitter, called Blue, will cost $8 per month and will include a verified checkmark for paying user accounts.

Elon Musk said the premium version of Twitter, called Blue, will cost $8 per month and will include a verified checkmark for paying user accounts.

Musk, who acquired the social network for $44 billion last week, said these Blue users would also get priority in replies, mentions and Twitter searches, and half as many ads. They would also have the ability to bypass paywalls for “publishers who want to work with us,” he said on Twitter.

Musk called Twitter Inc.’s current verification system, which puts a check on users and brands at risk of being impersonated, a “lords & peasants” system. “Power to the People!” he tweeted and asked people for $8 a month.

Musk said Twitter would use the revenue stream to reward content creators.

Currently Verified Users Don’t Pay For Their Badges — Twitter manually applies them to high-profile users and public figures, letting users know that the posts come from a legitimate source. Previous press releases have indicated that those who don’t pay will lose their ticks, but Musk said neither.

Twitter Blue existed before Musk took over, separate from the company’s verification system. It currently costs $4.99 per month and allows people to edit their tweets, organize tweets with bookmark folders, and change the look and design of Twitter, including the app icon.
