Elon Musk on Twitter’s “Official” Tag, Hours After Launch: “Just Killed It”

In the following months, Twitter will do a lot of stupid things, so be ready, warned Elon Musk. We will maintain what works and modify what doesn’t.
New Delhi: On Wednesday, Twitter quickly emerged and then disappeared with its most recent upgrade, which added an “Official” designation to some verified accounts. One of the few handles carrying the new tag was that of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Elon Musk, the “Complaint Hotline Operator” for the social media behemoth, attempted to allay the confusion this undoubtedly caused by saying, “Please note that Twitter will do plenty of dumb things in future months. It will be altered what doesn’t work and retained what does.

Early-stage products executive for Twitter Esther Crawford had stated that not all previously verified accounts will obtain the “Official” label and the label is not available for purchase. Government accounts, commercial businesses, business partners, significant media sites, publishers, and some public celebrities are among the accounts that will receive it.”
Despite intense criticism, entrepreneur Elon Musk continues to charge $8 for Twitter’s coveted blue badge. Recent tweets from Elon Musk include “Trash me all day, but it’ll cost $8.”
This led to uncertainty because Twitter did not make it clear how they would validate the thousands of holders of the Twitter blue checkmark. Failure to do so would have increased the number of people posing as well-known accounts.
Elon’s claim that “Blue check will be the greater leveler” alludes to a more streamlined method for conducting all verifications. The Blue Tick also becomes a sticker for a Twitter account that has subscribed to Twitter Blue if it does not show that the person is verified. The price Elon Musk has chosen for the Twitter Blue subscription is $8. Within a few weeks, the feature is anticipated to go live in India, but the price will be modified for purchasing power parity’s.
