See Elon Musk response to Twitter user who claimed the $8 blue-check verification fee is ruining the platform
Since taking over as owner, Elon Musk has not wavered from his $8 per month Twitter Blue subscription cost.
The billionaire owner has come under fire for charging verified Twitter users $8 per month in exchange for the ability to post longer videos, preserve their blue-check status, and have their content prioritized in replies, mentions, and searches.
Musk tweeted on his website that he enjoys it when “people complain about Twitter on Twitter.” despite the controversy over the $8 monthly price. One confirmed member didn’t take kindly to this and immediately accused him of damaging the platform with his “corrupt” verification.
