UN contacts Twitter on its $8 verification fee: Spokesman

Cebuano Cebuano English English Filipino Filipino


After Twitter’s new owner Elon Musk revealed his intention to charge USD $8 per month for verified users, the United Nations (UN) said on Friday that it had contacted the firm.

According to UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric, developments like the cost for blue check and the problem of content moderation “may affect how we interact on Twitter” and that we “may need to reassess our involvement.”

“We have thus raised several inquiries. We are awaiting clarification, but it goes without saying that we will make judgments based on what we hear “Dujarric said to journalists.

Long-time Twitter users have criticized Musk’s revelation over the blue check feature on the social networking site.

The price has been “adjusted by country commensurate to purchasing power parity,” he stated on Tuesday.

He claimed that giving users priority in answers, mentions, and searches is crucial for combating spam and scams. Additionally, tick users will be able to publish lengthy films and audio files and will only see half as many advertisements.

Initially, Musk’s proposal to charge consumers USD19.99 per month to create or maintain a verified account drew criticism.

As a result of Musk’s prior criticism of Twitter’s moderation procedures and claims that the platform is biased in favor of left-wing viewpoints, his acquisition of Twitter has also sparked a firestorm of discussion over the balance between free speech and internet harm.
