To be certified on Twitter, you will now have to pay

With the acquisition of Twitter, Elon Musk is already planning to launch his first priorities. In addition to cutting staff, the new boss announced on Tuesday 1er November that the certification of Twitter accounts was going to become chargeable. All subscribers who would like to have a little blue on their profile will have to pay the modest sum of 8 Dollars or 5284.00 CFA Francs / month.

Moreover, in addition to what subscribers will have to guarantee the authenticity of their account, it would allow them to publish longer videos and have fewer advertisements on their newsfeed. Anyone who agrees to pay for the blue badge will have plenty of followers to distinguish them from copycats.

Long before this new decision, the little blue badge was reserved for certain profiles, in particular political leaders, business leaders, the media, public, sports and cultural figures. Elon Musk also pointed out everyone who has the brand today will have to pay or it will be taken away from them.

However, the billionaire has not publicly specified a deadline for the implementation of the new system. But Elon Musk did ask engineers to work tirelessly on this overhaul of the system. They have until November 7 to roll out the new subscription. It should be noted that Twitter Blue is only available in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. It remains to be seen if the blue badge will be available worldwide.
