New Delhi: What will Elon Musk tweet next? Well, apparently no one but Musk knows! But the one thing we all know is that a single tweet from the “megalomaniac” billionaire has the potential to change the course of a lot of things happening in the real and virtual worlds, if not the world itself – it mostly depends on how quirky Musk is getting right now.Also Read – Twit Leader Elon Musk Dismisses Twitter Board, Is Now Sole Director
But here we’re talking about Stephen King, an author who posted a tweet criticizing Musk-owned Twitter’s latest proposal to charge $20 a month for blue profile verification, meaning it’s a verified account. His tweet that read, “$20 a month to keep my blue check? Damn that, they should pay me. If instituted, I’m gone like Enron” is garnering massive attention on the social media platform, which has forced Elon Musk to think twice.

In his defense, Elon Musk responded to the tweet by saying “We have to pay the bills one way or another!”.

We have to pay the bills one way or another! Twitter cannot rely entirely on advertisers. How about $8?

Musk using the pronoun “We” at the start of his answer gave himself an air of superiority. Of course, he just shelled out $44 billion to buy the social media platform, ending a month-long war of words with Twitter’s former executive headed by Indian-American Parag Agrawal. Musk wasted no time showing his strength. Almost immediately after the deal was struck, Musk fired CEO Parag Agrawal and his chief policy officer Vijaya Gadde, as well as Twitter chief financial officer Ned Segal.
The Verge reported that Elon Musk is considering revamping Twitter’s verification process by changing Twitter Blue, the company’s optional $4.99 per month subscription that unlocks additional features, to a more expensive subscription that also verifies. users, charging users. On Sunday, Musk tweeted: “The whole verification process is being overhauled right now.”
Elon Musk, who changed his Twitter bio to “Chief Twit” a day before the buyout ended (as in the public domain), changed his bio once again. Currently, his biography lists him as a “Twitter Complaint Hotline Operator”.
