New Twitter owner Elon Musk may start charging users $19.99 for the Twitter Blue subscription. 

After the new plan launches, verified users will have 90 days to subscribe or they will lose their coveted blue checkmark. 

Horror author Stephen King tweeted that he is not a fan of the idea, to which Musk replied, “We need to pay the bills somehow! Twitter cannot entirely rely on advertisers. How about $8?” Musk then added: “I will explain the rational in longer form before this is implemented. It is the only way to defeat bots & trolls.”

Regardless of the price, would you be willing to pay at all to be verified on Twitter?
