New Twitter landlord Elon Musk said Tuesday that the giant social media site will charge $8 per month to verify users’ accounts.

The Tesla boss made this known in a statement released on his verified Twitter account on Tuesday evening.

“Power to the people! Blue for $8/month,” the billionaire entrepreneur tweeted in reference to the platform’s famous blue checkmark, saying the new plan would upend the “current lords & peasants system” and create a new revenue stream for the site, AFP reported

Musked told his 118million followers that the price will be “adjusted by country proportionate to purchasing power parity.

“You will also get priority in replies, mentions & search, which is essential to defeating spam/scam, ability to post long video & audio, and half as many ads,” he said.

Musk added that “paywall bypass for publishers willing to work with us” and “this will also give Twitter a revenue stream to reward content creators.”
