Remember Twitter’s $1,000 golden tick designed for businesses? Something could change in a decidedly radical way, making it much cheaper to obtain it for some specific realities.
Apparently, in fact, Twitter would be ready to create exclusions for some more influential and deserving companies and personalities. Specifically, the golden tick will be free for the 10,000 most followed companies and for the top 500 advertisers; a sort of free pass, therefore, intended for those who contribute most decisively to communication on the social network of chirps.
This, at least, according to what a recent report by the NYT. But that’s not all, given that the structure and mechanism of the verification system will be profoundly revisited for companies and communication companies. As the guys from The Vergein fact, if a company decides to join while paying 1,000 dollars a month, it would then have the possibility of distribute verification badges to a circle of “affiliate” accounts as can be, for example, the journalists of an online newspaper. In this way, contacts with companies would be facilitated, giving greater credibility to the profiles with the tick.
Even this, however, will have its cost. Unlike what happens with Twitter Blue, in fact, the affiliate check will cost the company, which already pays 1,000 dollars a month, another $50 for each additional account.
