MOSCOW: Social network Twitter plans to charge users nearly US$20 (RM95) a month for verification as part of an overhaul announced by Elon Musk, reported Sputnik, quoting media report on Monday.
Employees working on the project were told on Sunday that they needed to launch the feature by November 7 or they would lose their job, the Verge reported.
Musk closed the US$44 billion (RM210 billion) acquisition deal last Friday. He tweeted on Sunday that “the whole verification process is being revamped right now.”
The optional premium subscription currently costs US$4.99 (RM25) a month. The new feature, called Twitter Blue, will cost US$19.99 a month, the Verge reported, citing internal correspondence and people familiar with the matter. – Bernama
