Elon Musk Confirms Twitter’s Blue Tick Price and Speculates on the Return of Vine

elon musk is planning to bring the vines back

In an effort to reduce spam and fake accounts on the platform, “Chief Twit” Elon Musk announced earlier this week that Twitter’s blue tick verification would cost money going forward. Along with Twitter Blue, it will soon become a paid perk, and now both its cost and availability are known.

Blue Tick on Twitter is a Paid Perk Now

Twitter Blue, a premium tier for paying users, will now cost $8 per month, up from $4.99, according to Musk. He also affirmed that the price will be proportionately changed to account for various nations’ varying levels of purchasing power.

According to Musk, the money made from these subscriptions will be used to compensate Twitter content producers. A secondary tag will appear beneath the name of public figures, a feature that is already available for politicians.

In addition, the founder of SpaceX wants to compete with TikTok by reviving Vine, Twitter’s looping video app that was discontinued in 2016. 70% of the nearly 5 million respondents to Musk’s Twitter poll asking if people wanted Vine back said yes.

Vine probably influenced TikTok videos, which later led to the Instagram reels that have become so popular today.

According to reports, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX has given engineers at Twitter instructions to work on bringing the platform back. By the end of the year, Vine might make a comeback, according to Axios.

Vine has not had its code base updated or changed since it was shut down in 2016. The engineers are to examine the app’s source code.

Axios also claimed that months prior to finalising the $44 billion deal, Musk had discussed reviving Vine. Many staff members have volunteered to work on the project, according to a Bloomberg report, in the hope that supporting Musk’s passions will help them keep their precarious jobs.

It’s interesting to note that Musk also questioned his fans about what would make Vine superior to TikTok. Many have questioned whether the billionaire as a result wants to buy TikTok?
