New Twitter owner Elon Musk has once again caused turmoil among users of the social media platform with more changes being made. Musk announced on the SMS service Sunday that profiles that impersonate another person without clearly identifying themselves will be permanently blocked without warning. There will be no warning before the user profile is suspended, because Twitter offers blanket verification.
It appears that several accounts that changed their names to Elon Musk or Musk-like names were suspended Sunday night. It also featured novels by American comedian Kathy Griffin and Australian satirical website Chaser.
New verification only after the US elections
Meanwhile, according to a media report, Twitter wants to postpone the introduction of the check mark for verification as part of an expensive new subscription worth eight dollars (8.10 euros). As The New York Times reported yesterday, Twitter wants to wait until tomorrow’s US midterm elections.
Twitter updated its app on Saturday, charging $8 a month for using the coveted tag on the verification badge. To date, tokens with a tag, which ensures the authenticity of the Twitter profile, have been allocated free of charge.
The group wants to reinstate the dismissed employees
According to a media report, after laying off half of its workforce, Twitter wants to bring back some employees.
Bloomberg News reported that the US company is currently in contact with dozens of former employees to bring them back. Some former employees who were supposed to return have been fired. Others were fired before management realized that their work and expertise might be essential to the platform’s future plans.
