Continue complaining, but it will cost $8/month – Elon Musk takes a dig at those complaining about Twitter Blue Tick subscription
Twitter’s new CEO, Elon Musk, has stated unequivocally that he will not change his mind about charging a monthly fee for Twitter’s “Blue Tick.”
Musk announced a $8 fee for the new Twitter Blue subscription shortly after taking over as CEO of Twitter. This is the first time a Twitter user has to pay for a verification badge.
Musk’s new strategy has sparked widespread outrage on the platform. Musk, on the other hand, has a strong response for all critics.
He told critics on Twitter: “To all complainers, please continue complaining, but it will cost $8.”

He also clarified the situation about Twitter Blue. Priority will be given to comments, mentions, and searches, extended videos and audio can be posted, there will be half as many ads, and publishers can skip paywalls.
Elon has made it clear that Twitter will display a “secondary tag” for public figures, which currently appears to be in place for politicians. This will help distinguish prominent accounts from the general public visually.
According to earlier reports, Elon Musk could have potentially given a deadline of November 7, 2022 to Twitter engineers to bring the new Twitter Blue service in effect, so the launch could be closer than people are expecting.
Elon said the price will be adjusted depending on the “country proportionate to purchasing power parity.”
