Last week, Musk had said that Twitter Blue will probably come back end of next week. On November 11, Elon Musk-owned Twitter suspended the paid subscription service which earlier had decided to charge USD 8 to users for getting verified.

The social media platform had decided to charge $8 to users who wanted that premium blue tick verification badge, but as the service was launched, many fake “verified” accounts cropped up on Twitter, forcing the platform to re-think its decision. Taking the matter into his hands, Musk said that any account trying to impersonate someone else would be disabled unless they declare it’s a parody account.

In his latest move, Twitter’s new boss fired yet another member of his micro-blogging platform team staff, that too via a tweet. The person whose employment has been terminated by Musk is an Android developer named Eric Frohnhoefer who had stated in his tweet that Musk’s assessment of Twitter being slow as the app is doing “>1000 poorly batched RPCs just to render timelines,” was wrong. As per the Verge, the trust and safety team had pointed out the scamming. The document, obtained by Verge, read: “Motivated scammers/bad actors could be willing to pay … to leverage increased amplification to achieve their ends where their upside exceeds the cost.”

The team also spoke about Impersonation. “Impersonation of world leaders, advertisers, brand partners, election officials, and other high profile individuals.” Taking the matter into his hands Musk had tweeted that any account trying to impersonate someone else would be disabled unless they declare it’s a parody account. The micro blogging site had launched a new verification badge, a grey tick designating accounts as “official,” in an effort to counteract the rise in fake accounts.

Within a few days, the company introduced this feature and then withdrew it before reintroducing it again. Musk had addressed a situation in a tweet sharing few days ago where he wrote, “Twitter will do lots of dumb things in coming months.”
