Twitter‘s verification rules are about to change and possibly more accessible than ever. It was rumored that those verified on the platform will have to pay a subscription in order to keep the coveted online status symbol on their profile under the new Elon Musk regime.
Platformer reports that verified users may have to pay $4.99 a month to keep their badge. This is part of Musk’s plans to make Twitter more profitable. Fortunately, this new system hasn’t been implemented and it’s still being discussed. Casey Newman, the journalist behind the story, also confirmed that the subscription service could be an easy pathway to give users verification features. However, it is unknown if paid users who were not verified will also get the badge.
