(Reuters) – Twitter is postponing the rollout of confirmation check marks to customers of its brand-new $8 a month service up until after Tuesday’s midterm elections, the New York Times reported on Sunday.
Twitter did not right away react to an ask for remark.
The U.S. midterm elections on Tuesday will choose whether Republicans or President Joe Biden’s Democrats will manage Congress.
Changes to Twitter’s confirmation procedure came a week after Elon Musk took control of the social networks business in a $44 billion offer. On Saturday, Twitter upgraded its app in Apple (NASDAQ:)’s App Store to start charging $8 for blue check confirmation marks.
Twitter just recently laid off 50% of its workers, consisting of workers on the trust and security group, the business’s head of security and stability Yoel Roth stated in a tweet previously today.
Reuters reported on Thursday that Musk has actually directed Twitter’s groups to discover approximately $1 billion in yearly facilities expense savings.
