In April, Musk said he wanted to “authenticate all real humans” on Twitter. Now, Musk wants Twitter users to pay for the blue checkmark verification system. That system, which is now free, is meant to identify the authenticity of certain accounts, including celebrities, brands, government offices and journalists.

An $8 monthly fee could include fewer ads, the ability to post long videos and audio, and priority in replies, mention and search – in addition to the long-coveted blue checkmark, according to Musk.

Arrokoth And The Many Mysteries Of The Primordial Sky

There is a distant, dim domain of everlasting twilight in our Solar System’s outer limits, where our Sun can glow gently with only a faint, feeble fire. This faraway region is named the Kuiper belt, and it is the home of the dwarf planet Pluto, its large frigid moon, Charon, and a multitude of other frozen objects that include a dancing sea of icy comet nuclei. Fragile and ephemeral, comets that come streaking inward towards the brilliant light and melting heat of our Star, are the fleeing refugees from this remote region of perpetual dusk. In February 2020, planetary scientists from NASA’s New Horizons mission to Pluto, and beyond, announced that data collected from this mission are providing new insights into how planets and planetesimals–the building blocks of planets–were born in our primordial Solar System. The New Horizons spacecraft soared past the ancient Kuiper belt object Arrokoth on January 1, 2019, providing humanity with its very first close-up view of one of those mysterious icy relics of our Solar System’s birth almost five billion years ago.
