Elon Musk’s Latest Stupid Twitter Idea Could Kill the Platform Forever

It’s not even a week after Elon Musk becomes the owner (or ‘Chief Twit’ as he calls the position) of Twitter, and his plans to overhaul the verification process seem like a terrible idea.

According to On the edge (opens in new tab), Musk is planning to increase the monthly price of Twitter Blue, which lets you edit tweets, as well as get custom icons and exclusive features, from $4.99 / £4.99 / AU$5.99 to $19.99 / £19.99 / AU$20.99. When signing up, Twitter Blue users will also be verified, which gives them a blue tick next to their username – something that was previously limited to verified users such as notable public figures, politicians and members of the media.
