But one such change gaining a lot of steam is directed at a new paid subscription to get a blue verification check on the platform.
Twitter Blue, which is the platform's current subscription plan, is $4.99 a month.
In a tweet on Tuesday (1 November), Musk revealed the pers to the subscription, which includes things like half the amount of ads, priority in the replies section, the ability to post long videos and audio, and other things.
\u201cYou will also get:\n- Priority in replies, mentions & search, which is essential to defeat spam/scam\n- Ability to post long video & audio\n- Half as many ads\u201d
Cohen, who said this might be his "stupidest contribution" to the platform, still urged people to be #RatVerified and not to pay for the platform.
\u201cnumba one baybee\n\nthis is perhaps my stupidest contribution to twitter but regardless everyone should become #RatVerified and ignore whatever stupidity elon throws your way\n\ndo not pay for this website!!!\u201d

Speaking with Newsweek, he shared that the verification system already present does have "issues," but it helps weed out the fake accounts and things of that sort.
"Elon Musk's proposal to charge for verification, and to give those verified users greater visibility, solves none of the current system's problems and will only make Twitter harder to navigate," he told the outlet.
A report from The Verge, said that people who already are verified on Twitter would have only 90 days to subscribe or risk losing the blue check.
They also noted that the employees working on this project were allegedly told they would be fired if they didn't meet the project's 7 November deadline.
Twitter would become the first social media app to require payment for verification.
