The new version of Twitter Blue will include some sort of verification accessible for $8 per month in the US, with the price “adjusted by country proportionate to purchasing power parity.”

Musk announced the shake-up of the premium service by saying that “Twitter’s current lords & peasants’ system for who has or doesn’t have a blue checkmark is bullshit.”

Musk also says that the service will get you:

  • Priority in replies, mentions, and search, which Musk argues is “essential to defeat spam/scam”
  • Ability to post long video and audio
  • Half as many ads
  • And “paywall bypass for publishers willing to work with us”

Until this point, Twitter Blue has been a very different service, which wasn’t tied to being verified.

It cost $4.99 a month, and its main offerings were the ability to read ad-free articles, undo or edit tweets (in some countries), and customize your navigation bar.

It also lets you set an NFT as your profile picture.

As of Tuesday, however, the portion of the ad-free article was removed, though it seems Musk wants to work with publishers in some way, given the intention to let Blue subscribers bypass paywalls.
