Tuesday, Elon Musk presented several proposals for a new user authentication system for Twitter, which he recently purchased for $44 billion.
Musk questioned the present system in a series of tweets, which grants a blue check mark, or verification, to prominent users including politicians, journalists, executives, and other persons and groups. Users have used it as a way to understand that the check mark denotes a real account. Similar verification processes are used by Facebook and Instagram, two other social networks owned by Meta.

By charging $8 per month for verification through Twitter Blue, Musk claimed he would give “power to the people.” Participants, he claimed, would receive half as many advertising, have priority in mentions, replies, and searches, and be allowed to tweet lengthy audio and video files.
A second tag, which, as Musk noted, already exists for politicians, will display beneath the names of those who are prominent figures, he continued.
The Tesla CEO added that publications eager to cooperate with the social media platform will let Twitter Blue subscribers a “paywall bypass.”

The “cost of criminality on Twitter will increase by several orders of magnitude,” he asserted, and added that any Blue accounts who engage in spamming will be suspended. He claimed that this strategy will “kill the bots.”
It’s uncertain whether these adjustments will actually be made.
The tech tycoon was reportedly considering asking as much as $19.99 a month for the Twitter Blue subscription, according to an earlier story from The Verge Sunday. Musk’s thread comes in response to that revelation. According to the story, the Twitter staff working on the project were reportedly given until November 7 to activate the feature or face termination.

The CEO of SpaceX and Tesla completed the purchase of Twitter on October 28 and made an immediate impact there. SpaceX manufactures reusable rockets. He immediately dismissed Twitter’s board of directors, chief executive officer, chief financial officer, and heads of the company’s policy and legal teams.
