Elon Musk plans to charge $20 per month for the Blue verification mark on Twitter after he took over the social media firm on Thursday. However, a new poll indicates almost 80% are unwilling to pay for the Blue verification mark on Twitter. Elon Musk also voted and finds the results “interesting.”
Elon Musk Comments on Poll About Twitter Verification
American Internet entrepreneur and podcaster Jason Calacanis posted a poll on Twitter about how much anyone should pay for the Twitter verification checkmark. Surprisingly, almost 80% out of 463K respondents have voted “wouldn’t pay” on the poll. Meanwhile, 11.9% are willing to pay $5, 2.7% could pay $10, and 5.9% voted to pay $15 a month.
Elon Musk also commented and finds the voting “interesting.” Musk on Monday tweeted that “the whole verification process is being revamped right now.”
Currently, Elon Musk is working on Twitter Blue, an optional $4.99 monthly subscription offering premium features. Musk plans to charge $19.99 monthly for the Twitter Blue subscription and includes the Blue verification feature in the subscription.
Moreover, users who are currently verified would have 90 days to subscribe to Twitter Blue or lose their blue checkmark. Elon Musk is reportedly planning to fire employees working on the project if they could not meet the November 7 deadline.
While people supported Elon Musk’s efforts for introducing changes to Twitter, including solving the bots issue. Twitterati criticized the move to charge $20 for a subscription and verification. It means anyone having $20 can become verified and continues spams or scams.
