On Friday it became official: Elon Musk was the new CEO of Twitter . The social network, since then, has begun to undergo a series of profound changes. From the dismissals on the part of the board, going through small changes in the app. Now a bruising is coming on the very foundations.
With Elon Musk at the helm, Twitter plans to increase the price of its. Blue subscription plan from $5 to $20 a month and make it mandatory for verified users . The most coveted blue tick on Twitter will become a luxury, almost as much as buying a Tesla or traveling to space with SpaceX .
If the plan is launched, verified users will have to sign up for the service within 90 days or lose the blue tick . In addition, employees working on the project have been informed that they will be fired if they do not implement the changes by November 7.
Twitter launched Blue late last year in the US for $3 a month, but raised the price to $5 in July. This subscription gives customers features like featured articles, custom icons and, more recently, the ability to edit tweets .
