The blue tick was removed after The New York Times said it would not pay Twitter to be verified
The New York Times has lost its blue tick after refusing to pay Twitter to be verified. From April 1st, giving blue ticks only to those who take monthly subscriptions means that the company is removing the blue ticks of all non-paying users, and in the meantime, Twitter and the New York Times have also lost their blue ticks.
Many other organizations, including the New York Times, are also saying that they will not take subscriptions for Blue Tick. The New York Times account, which has 55 million followers on Twitter, has lost the Blue Tick.
Along with this, the media organization has also said that it will not pay for the Blue Tick account of its journalists. After this, the CEO of Twitter, Elon Musk, tweeted that the New York Times works on propaganda and the content of the New York Times is not very interesting.
]Adding to this, Musk also mocked the New York Times’ feed on Twitter as a ‘diarrhea-like version’. There has been no official comment from Twitter or the New York Times on this matter. To get a blue tick on Twitter, an individual has to pay $8 a month and an organization has to pay $1,000 a month.
