After Musk took over Twitter, we got him to propose a new paid plan for verifying his Twitter account. In this verification plan, you will have to pay $8 per month to get the blue checkmark behind your Twitter username. This is what it takes to become a verified Twitter user.
Now one of our users, Alex, learned of this new confirmation plan on Twitter. He tweeted, “If you can place a rat next to my name for free, why would you pay $8 for a blue check? Cheers to everyone who will join us in becoming #RatVerified.”

Elon Musk’s reaction to dissatisfied users
Even though people don’t like Elon Musk’s new paid verification plan for Twitter. It seems that Elon Musk has decided not to change his plans. In a tweet, he said, “Please keep complaining to all the complainers. But it costs $8,” he made clear his intentions in a tweet.
In addition, a lot of changes are expected on Twitter as the function to pay for all direct messages is expected to be added. We also want to take action on inactive Twitter accounts.
