Elon Musk prepares, charges for "blue tick" Twitter

Twitter has been a powerful communications tool for celebrities, politicians, and businesses for years. But one thing has always been missing: a way to verify users. That changed recently when Twitter introduced a new feature called "Twitter Blue."

Twitter Blue is a monthly subscription service that gives users access to exclusive features, like Verified Accounts and Twitter Analytics. It also allows users to customize their Twitter experience with different color themes and fonts.

The service costs $8 per month, and users can cancel at any time.

Elon Musk, the billionaire CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, was one of the first to sign up for Twitter Blue. He announced his subscription on Twitter, saying "Twitter Blue is awesome!"

Musk has long been an advocate for verified accounts on Twitter. In November, he even offered to pay Twitter's verification fee for all of his followers.

With Twitter Blue, Musk finally has a way to verify his account. And for just $8 per month, it's a small price to pay for such a valuable service.
