Twitter (TWTR.N) is considering charging for the coveted blue check mark verifying the identity of its account

holder, technology newsletter Platformer reported on Sunday, citing two people familiar with the matter.


Users would have to subscribe to Twitter Blue at $4.99 a month or lose their “verified” badges if the project

moves forward, according to the report.

The CEO of Tesla Inc (TSLA.O) has not made a final decision and the project could still be scrapped

but according to Platformer it is likely that verification will become a part of Twitter Blue.


Separately, The Verge reported on Sunday that Twitter will increase the subscription price for Twitter Blue,

which also verifies users, from $4.99 a month to $19.99 a month, citing internal correspondence seen by them.


Twitter Blue  launched in June last year as the platform’s first subscription service, which offers

“exclusive access to premium features” on a monthly subscription basis including an option to edit tweets.

The feature to edit tweets  also made available earlier this month after Musk launched a Twitter poll in April

asking his millions of followers whether they wanted an edit button. Over 70% had said yes.

Musk has also requested that logged out users visiting Twitter’s site be redirected to Explore page which shows

trending tweets, according to a separate Vergereport on Sunday citing employees who were familiar with the matter.
