Elon Musk was appointed to Twitter’s board of directors last week, and the billionaire pledged to make big changes to the network in the coming days. Musk, who is now Twitter’s largest shareholder, proposes further modifications for Twitter Blue users. Furthermore, he believes Twitter is fading.
Twitter Blue users will see some changes
Musk proposes a few tweaks to make the platform more relevant. These modifications mostly affect Twitter Blue subscribers. The subscription is now accessible in the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. The premium membership will most likely be available in India shortly.
Users who join up for Twitter Blue, according to the billionaire, should pay substantially less to use the service. The subscription fee is currently fixed at $2.99 per month. “Price should probably be $2/month, but paid 12 months in advance & account doesn’t receive checkmark for 60 days (watch for credit card chargebacks) & banned with no refund if used for scam/spam,” Musk said in one of his tweets.
He also advises that Blue users receive an authenticating checkmark as well as the option to pay in local currency. Musk also offered a dogecoin payment option and solicited feedback from Twitter users. For those who are unfamiliar, the microblogging service currently enables users to reward their favourite content providers using bitcoin.
The edit option will also be available shortly. Twitter announced the addition of the edit button after Musk joined the company as a board member. Musk was thought to be the driving force behind the long-awaited edit feature, which Twitter has ignored for a long time. The edit option will be available to Blue users initially, followed by public users later this year.
