In addition, there are concerns that Twitter may lose its status as a platform for obtaining accurate, up-to-date information from authentic sources, including in emergencies because many government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and public-service accounts worldwide are no longer verified.

However, numerous individuals have shared hilarious responses on Twitter since this announcement was made:

Regarding the verification charges, the cost of Twitter Blue varies by region and registration method. It costs $11 per month, or $114.99 per year, for iOS or Android users in the United States and $8 per month, or $84 per year, for web users. Twitter Blue costs 900 rupees per month in India for iOS, 650 rupees per month for web, and 9400 rupees per year for iOS. The monthly cost for Android users is 900 rupees, while the annual fee is 9,400 rupees.

The blue check mark was first introduced by Twitter in 2009 to assist users in determining whether celebrities, politicians, businesses, news organizations, and other accounts “of public interest” were genuine and not fake or parody accounts. In the past, the company did not charge for verification.

However, within two weeks of Twitter’s takeover last year, Musk introduced the check-mark badge as one of the premium benefits.
