The American billionaire and owner of Twitter, Elon Musk, announced the deadline for blue verification marks to appear on the accounts of subscribers who did not pay for the previously announced documentation service.
And Musk tweeted through his account on the site owned by him, Twitter: On April 20, we will remove the blue check marks on Twitter for those who do not pay the subscription.
Twitter has made the blue verification mark a key feature of its Twitter Blue subscription offer, which Musk started pricing at $8 per month and is now promoting as the best way to enjoy and improve the service.
The wave of changes did not only include the blue tick, but went far beyond that, as Bloomberg news agency said that Twitter was no longer an independent company, after merging with a new company called X Corp, which sparked speculation about Elon Musk’s future plans.
“Twitter no longer exists after its merger with X Corp, according to a document issued on April 4 and filed with a California court,” the source said.
It is not yet clear what this change means for Twitter, which has seen a host of changes since it was bought by the American billionaire Musk for $44 billion last year.
The second richest man in the world has previously announced his desire to make “X” similar to the Chinese application “WeChat”, a popular application owned by “Tencent Holdings”.
