Musk is delaying payment verification plan for Twitter until November 29


The proposed new payment model was said to have been suspended after countless users obtained authentication to impersonate entities

Elon Musk, who has owned the social network Twitter since late October, announced Tuesday his decision to delay the platform’s payment verification program until November 29.

“We’re delaying the release of ‘Blue Verified’ to November 29 to make sure it’s rock solid,” the South African tycoon said in a post on Twitter.

Musk’s decision comes after several days in which users of the social network who had opted to pay $7.99 per month indicated that they would not be able to access “Twitter Blue’s” features.

The new payment model proposed by the billionaire was allegedly suspended after countless users obtained authentication to impersonate entities of recognized prestige, harming the reputation of companies or public figures.

As it did until it stopped working, “Twitter Blue” includes additional features that only its subscribers can access. Among them, to customize the icon of the “app” itself and the theme of your account, activate reading mode or create folders with items saved from the profile, as well as early access to tested features, such as editing the tweets. The plan also offers fewer ads.

Meanwhile, one of the most significant changes is the meaning of the blue tick. The badge no longer referred only to accounts that were verified as “active, noteworthy and authentic”, but also indicated that the account had an active subscription to ‘Twitter Blue’, as the company explains on its page dedicated to subscriptions.
