Ο Elon Musk σαν νέος ιδιοκτήτης του Twitter, έδωσε στους υπαλλήλους το πρώτο τους τελεσίγραφο: Τηρήστε την προθεσμία του για την επαλήθευση επί πληρωμή στο Twitter ή μαζέψτε τα πράγματά σας και φύγετε.
The directive will change Twitter Blue, the company's optional $4,99-a-month subscription that unlocks additional features, to a more expensive subscription that verifies users, according to people familiar with the matter and internal correspondence seen by the The Verge. Twitter currently plans to charge $19,99 for the new Twitter Blue subscription.
Under the plan, already verified users will have 90 days to sign up or lose their blue tick. Employees will have to meet the deadline and release the new feature by November 7, or they will be fired.
Musk seems to want to revamp the way Twitter accounts are verified. On Sunday, He wrote: "The entire verification process is currently being refreshed."
0 Musk moved quickly with the changes on Twitter, first changing its home page for logged out users. With the help of Tesla engineers he brought to Twitter as consultants, he is planning mass layoffs of middle managers and engineers who have not recently contributed to the code base. Those cuts are expected to begin this week with managers already drawing up lists of workers to be laid off.
Employees tasked with running Musk's projects since he took control Thursday afternoon have been working late into the night and into the weekend.
