Musk suggests Twitter changes, including accepting Dogecoin
As Twitter’s newest board member and largest shareholder,
Elon Musk is already floating suggestions for changes he’d like to see on the social media platform
In a series of tweets late Saturday, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO said that the company
should include an “authentication checkmark” as a feature of its Twitter Blue premium subscription service, which costs $2.99 a month.
Twitter adds a checkmark logo next to a user name when the account has been verified “authentic, notable and active.”
Musk also suggested Twitter make the authentication checkmarks of premium subscriber accounts
different than those granted to official accounts belonging to public figures, for example.
Such a move, Musk said, would “massively expand” the pool of verified user accounts and discourage the proliferation of spam “bot” accounts,
