‘It's all Business’, perfectly resonates with the current blue tick chaos. The head of Twitter Elon Musk announced a new iteration of the "Twitter Blue" plan. Twitter earlier used to only grant Blue check marks to accounts deemed "authentic, notable, and active." The company largely verifies accounts it deems "notable in government, news, entertainment, or another designated category." But the new plan hammers on the worthiness and authenticity of the verification by imposing a monthly of $8 on the same.

The Tesla owner tweeted, “Twitter`s current lords & peasants system for who has or doesn`t have a blue checkmark is bullshit. Power to the people! Blue for USD 8/month."

What is Twitter Blue Subscription?

Twitter launched its Twitter Blue subscription service last year at a price of $4.99 a month. This paid program offered benefits like the ability to undo tweets, a customizable navigation bar, different color home screen icons, ad-free articles, and prioritized customer support. However, the subscription service was separate from Twitter's verification process. 

Musk suggested combining the two into a more expensive premium package charging $8 per month. He believes that the new subscription model is the only way to ditch the spam bots issue, which he feels is the most annoying problem with Twitter. Also, he further adds that this will also create a revenue stream to reward content creators. 

This means that Indian users need to pay Rs.660 for blue tick every month
