Elon Musk Confirms Twitter Employees Secretly Sold Verification Badges Under Previous Management

Elon Musk revealed that Twitter staff members sold verification badges for more than $15,000 in secret.
The previous Twitter policy stated that individuals who sought and could validate their notoriety would receive free blue verification badges.
The news broke after the Wall Street Bet’s account tweeted out that some “Twitter employees were selling verification for upwards of $15,000. For certain accounts, mine included, they would refuse to verify you through the standard application”.
Musk would respond to the WSB Account by saying “yup”.
Wall Streets Bets wasn’t the only well-known person who couldn’t get a verification under the previous Twitter administration.
Doug Mastriano, a candidate for office in Pennsylvania, never obtained a verification badge despite applying for one and fulfilling Twitter’s requirements for famous candidates.

Under Elon Musk, getting a verification badge will be much easier.
For just $7.99 subscribers of Twitter Blue will receive a verification badge.
That’s a lot more affordable than $15,000.
Twitter will continue to be free for all users, but users that pay $7.99 will also be able to edit tweets and see less advertisements in addition to keeping or getting a blue verification badge.
