Elon Musk It says that the new version of the Twitter Blue sharing service (Twitter Blue) is available in the United States at a monthly price of eight dollars, and through it, it is possible to authenticate users. The price of the new service will be different in different countries.
Elon Musk has made it clear that he is not satisfied with Twitter’s current system for granting blue ticks and is looking to change it. Musk says the new Twitter Blue will enable prioritization of replies, mentions and searches, a feature Twitter’s new leader sees as essential to combating spam.
The $8 Twitter Blue allows you to post longer videos and audio files, and has half the amount of ads as the free version. Also, if news agencies cooperate, Twitter will provide access to paid articles of major publications for free.
The current version of Twitter Blue has many differences with the new version. One of the biggest differences is that currently, getting a blue tick is not dependent on getting Twitter Blue. Twitter Blue is currently offered at a monthly price of $4.99, and its main features include the ability to read articles without ads, edit tweets, and customize the navigation bar. Twitter Blue also allows you to use an NFT image as your profile picture.
as Verge He writes, Elon Musk has made it impossible to access ad-free articles on Twitter Blue this Tuesday.
Elon Musk has repeatedly said that he plans to reduce Twitter’s reliance on advertising. Currently, a significant part of Twitter’s revenue is earned through advertising. It was previously said that the monthly price of Twitter Blue may reach 20 dollars. According to unconfirmed reports, Twitter employees have about a week to implement Elon Musk’s proposed changes to Twitter Blue.
Elon Musk has not yet said when the new version of Twitter Blue will be available. Documents inside the Twitter app show that no major changes have been made to the Blue service yet. Elon Musk says Twitter Blue will help the text-based social network “reward” content creators. It is not clear at this time what kind of rewards Twitter has in mind.
Despite Elon Musk’s special emphasis on changing the authentication system, it is not clear how the new system will work. In today’s social networks, famous people get a blue tick because there are so many fake accounts attributed to them. Musk said that he wants to use the authentication system to control spam accounts.
