You will not have to pay for Twitter Blue Tick! subscription program suspended

0 8

Elon Musk’s decision to charge $8 for Twitter’s blue ticks has landed in new trouble. Several fake account holders in the US got blue ticks by paying $8 and after that fake tweets were made from these accounts. Troubled by this, Twitter has stopped the Blue Tick subscriber service for the time being on Friday. Before Musk bought Twitter, blue ticks were available only to celebrities, journalists, politicians etc. and Twitter used to authenticate these accounts. According to Musk’s new rules, now anyone with a phone, credit card and the ability to spend $8 per month can get a blue tick.

In the US, one such person got a blue tick by creating a fake account of pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly & Co and then tweeted that insulin is available for free. After this the pharmaceutical company had to publicly apologize. Not only this company, people have created fake accounts of Nintendo, Lockheed Martin, Musk’s own company Tesla and Space X etc. For such advertisers doing business on Twitter who are already taking stock of the situation by stopping their business, fake accounts can be a big blow.

The company had recently asked users to charge US$8 for the blue tick feature on its platform. Also, in exchange for these eight dollars, the company was also going to give many exclusive benefits to its users. That is, by paying money, anyone can get a blue tick.
