Twitter's blue tick set to get a shakeup from Elon Musk

From Morning Report, 7:56 am on 1 November 2022

Twitter's blue tick is one of many functions of the platform being given a shake-up following Elon Musk's takeover.

Some commentators are speculating he'll be putting a pricetag on the tick, which indicates an account is authentic and of public interest.

It's currently free but requires users to provide evidence of association with a well-known individual or brand.

Social media commentator and The Bulletin newsletter editor for The Spinoff Anna Rawhiti-Connell spoke to Morning Report.
