Elon’s Move to Change Twitter Verification System Is Causing Liberal Blue-Check Tantrums

We reported on reports that Elon Musk may be adding a new system for Twitter and charging for verification/having a check.

Musk is now fleshing it out more. Naturally, fragile liberal blue checks melt down in response.

“Twitter’s current system of lords and peasants for who has or does not have a blue checkmark, is a bullshit. All power to the people! Musk stated that Blue would cost $8 per month and suggested that he might charge $8 per month in order to allow more people to use his services without advertising. This would allow him to avoid being threatened by advertising boycotts. It is a common liberal effort that suppresses things they don’t want.

Musk stated that it would be proportionate. “Price adjustment by country proportionately to purchasing power parity.”

Then he finished with a flourish and a fun flair.

Mark Finchem, the Republican candidate for Arizona Secretary-of-State, noticed a difference late on Halloween night from Elon’s “Top Twit”.

Conservatives stated that he should first clear up shadowbanning. Otherwise, they shouldn’t have to pay $8 for a “blue-check” mark.

This is a great point. People on the right hope that many problems can be fixed now, and Musk has already indicated that he will investigate shadow banning. We could allow him to finish his task, given that he has already stated that he is interested in solving these problems.

However, some of the left’s tantrums were more enjoyable than the idea that they would be paid.

Stephen King and David Hogg stated that they believed they should be paid for the wisdom pearls they believe they have received.


They responded to an earlier report that it could have been 20 dollars.

As if anyone could use Twitter to hear from one of these characters.

Perhaps someone can tell me why Hogg has a blue check, but Jonathan Turley, a George Washington University professor, doesn’t.

There’s still a lot to do. It’s amazing that Elon seems determined to take it on-and that’s something everybody can cheer about.
