Twitter removes The New York Times’ bluetick, which doesn’t pay to verify
The New York Times has lost its blue tick after refusing to pay Twitter to be verified. From April 1, the company is removing the blue ticks of all non-paying users by giving blue ticks only to those who take monthly subscriptions.
Accordingly, Twitter and the New York Times have also removed the blue tick. 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 its blue tick. Along with this, the organization has also said that it will not pay for the Blue Tick account of its journalists.
After this, the CEO of Twitter, Alan Musk, tweeted that the New York Times works on propaganda and that the contents of the New York Times are not very interesting.
Adding to this, Musk also said that the New York Times feed on Twitter was 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 dollars a month and an organization has to pay 1 thousand dollars a month to get a gold tick.
