Twitter: already a big change on the way after the takeover by Elon Musk

After the takeover of the social network by billionaire Elon Musk for a total of 44 billion dollars, the monthly subscription to the pro version Twitter Blue will increase to 19.99 dollars (20.15 euros) and it could become mandatory to continue enjoying certain “privileges”.

Elon Musk imposes his choices for Twitter

So, Elon Musk has decided to charge for the certification of accounts through a monthly subscription to Twitter as reported by the always very informed The Verge. Twitter employees have obviously been ordered to implement the paid system by November 7, 2022. A particularly short margin to swallow the pill for thousands of users.

This should be the case for newcomers but also for all those who currently have a verified account. There should be no preferential treatment. Accounts already certified must subscribe to the service within 90 days or risk losing the precious blue badge.

It remains to be seen how this information will be received by the public. Are we going to have the right to a massive exodus on another social network? Or are we simply going to experience the end of an era with no real change for the everyday Twitter user?

No doubt most companies will surely pay 20 dollars a month to obtain the precious sesame. Especially since it seems to have a strong impact on most people and on the legitimacy of certain remarks (even if…).
