Billionaire and richest man on earth Elon Musk continues to propose new Twitter changes, tweeting on Twitter (no pun intended) he mentions that he has suggestions for Twitter Blue, Twitter’s subscription service. To start he proposes to lower the price of subscriptions, ban ads, and also add a payment method with the Dogecoin cryptocurrency.
As part of the stock purchase deal, Musk is also on the board of directors
The Tesla CEO who recently purchased 9.2% of the social media titan; regularly makes statements through the platform, and his opinions have a huge impact on the economic markets.
With his stock purchase, he is also appointed to the board of directors, commenting that he is looking forward to working with his peers to make improvements to the platform.
Twitter Blue offers an Undo Tweet option for subscribers
Twitter Blue was launched in June of last year, which is a paid subscription service that allows members to have exclusive access to select features not available to all, such as the “Undo Tweet” option that permits users to remove a tweet with a customizable timer of 30 seconds, which is a step closer to the long-awaited “edit” button; another perk on the service is to personalize the app icons and add bookmarks.
Everyone who signs up for Twitter Blue (ie pays $3/month) should get an authentication checkmark

He also says that the price should be less than $2.00 a month but pay the whole year upfront and get the blue checkmark until 60 days later.
The Twitter Blue service is now available only in the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, but most likely will be available elsewhere when all the kinks are worked out.
To this Musk commented that the pricing should be in proportion to how affordable it is in the local currency.
