Elon Musk needs to raise money for his floundering social media platform, so he plans to charge corporations and brands $1,000 a month in order to keep their coveted gold check-marks on Twitter.
Twitter is asking organizations to pay $1,000 per month, plus an additional $50 monthly for each affiliated sub-account, to maintain the gold check-mark verification badges the company introduced in December, replacing the blue check-marks for businesses, according to social media consultant Matt Navarra.
Musk has said that within the next few months, Twitter will discontinue all legacy verified check-marks, so that eventually only paying individual and corporate customers will have verified status.
Twitter has already begun charging regular users $8 a month to maintain their blue check-mark verified status.
In November, Musk reinstated Donald Trump’s account obviously in hopes the Donald would return to the platform and generate more traffic with his cultists.
