In what could be the beginning of a total revamp, Twitter appears to be set to axe key feature for its Blue subscribers. This comes at the back of reports stating the increase in Twitter Blue subscription fee. The proposal could be the first among various changes after Elon Musk announced the revamp of the entire Twitter verification process. One other proposed change is the raising of subscription fee to $19.99 from $4.99.
Changes To Twitter Blue Feature
The last few days have been very busy at Twitter headquarters following the official takeover by Elon Musk. Very soon, Twitter Blue subscribers could be deprived of access to ad-free articles from publishers. According to a Wall Street Journal report, the social media company is ending the feature that allowed Blue subscribers to to access ad-free articles. The paid monthly subscription offers exclusive access to premium Twitter features to let subscribers customize their experience on the platform. Musk tweeted about Twitter revamp:
“The whole verification process is being revamped right now.”
The subscription service is currently offered in Twitter Blue in the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. At the time of launch last year, the social media company said Twitter Blue is not targeted at making it a fully paid service. The introduction of Blue service does not mean the free version of Twitter is going away, it explained. “Twitter Blue simply offers an opt-in layer of customization for your Twitter experience.”
Dogecoin For Twitter Payments
Soon after Elon Musk’s official acquisition of the platform was completed, speculation began about integrating crypto within Twitter payments. The rumor was fueled by Musk’s long time support for his favorite cryptocurrency, Dogecoin (DOGE). This also led to a huge spike in DOGE price over the last one week. Over the last 7 days, the memecoin price rose by a stagering 128%. As of writing , DOGE price stands at $0.1385, up 13.94% in the last 24 hours, according to price tracking platform CoinMarketCap.
