@sriramk any chance in helping with verification? Denied some 4-5 times despite large following and working to share spaceflight/rocket launches to the masses via my photography. Published in a plethora of huge outlets but Twitter doesn’t seem to care! https://t.co/efL1l1H2d9

Sources has quoted Platformer as saying that Twitter is considering charging a fee to verify the account holder’s account and give a blue tick. According to the report, Twitter users may have to pay $ 4.99 i.e. around Rs 415 per month to maintain the blue tick i.e. to keep their account verified.
However, as of now Chief Tweet Elon Musk has not taken any final decision in this regard and this entire project can also be rejected. According to the platform, it is possible that the verification will be a part of Twitter Blue.
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 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.
Twitter Blue was launched in June last year as the platform’s first subscription service which offers “exclusive access to premium features” on monthly subscription basis including a feature to edit tweets.
The feature to edit tweets was also made available earlier this month after Musk’s insistence using a Twitter poll in April asking his millions of followers whether they wanted an edit button. Over 70% had said yes.
The billionaire has also requested that logged out users visiting Twitter’s site be redirected to Explore page which shows trending tweets, The Verge reported on Sunday citing employees who were familiar with the matter.
