Elon Musk announces twitter blue tick shake-up

Twitter boss Elon Musk has announced a shake-up of the social media platform’s paid Twitter Blue feature. From 15 April only verified subscribers will have posts recommended to other users and be allowed to vote in polls.

Under the policy, posts from non-paying accounts will not be included in the “For you” stream of recommended tweets.


Last week, the firm said it would remove the verified status of some “legacy” accounts, which date from before  Musk bought the firm. Users currently pay $7 (£5.70) a month for blue-tick verification, which also allows access to additional features.

Musk said the changes were “the only realistic way to address advanced AI bot swarms taking over. It is otherwise a hopeless losing battle.”

“Voting in polls will require verification for the same reason,” he added.
