Elon Musk says process for blue verified Twitter badge to be 'revamped.' What's changing? The process to gain a coveted blue check mark on Twitter may soon change. New "Chief Twit" Elon Musk said Twitter will revise its verification process amid reports the company plans to charge $20 per month to be verified. 

That idea will likely stay in play, after Musk indicated Monday in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission that he will remain CEO of the newly purchased social media platform

"The whole verification process is being revamped right now," Musk tweeted Sunday, without offering any details on what exactly might change.  

But reports have said Twitter is considering charging users to keep their verified status under Twitter Blue, the social media site's subscription service with premium features. 

According to current Twitter's current verification requirements, the blue verified badge is meant to signal the authenticity of accounts of public interest.

The reports of changes in the verification process came just days after Musk closed the deal to buy Twitter after months of legal wrangling between the billionaire and the company's management. 

The current Twitter verification process is free, however, is reportedly considering a plan that would require users to subscribe to Twitter Blue at $4.99 a month or face losing their verified badges, Platformer reported, citing two people familiar with the matter. 

Meanwhile, The Verge, citing internal correspondence and unnamed sources, reported the social media platform would raise the price of Twitter Blue from $4.99 to $19.99 per month, and verified users would have 90 days to subscribe or lose the blue badge.
