Will you accept dogecoin for this?

"We want to make sure that #crypto has a seat at the table when it comes to free speech," says @cz_binance on @binance investing $500M into @elonmusk's purchase of @twitter. "We want to help bring @twitter into Web3 when they're ready." pic.twitter.com/BmbWJqXvul

I don't get this critique that charging $8/month creates an economic hierarchy. The current blue check system is *far* more exclusive than even the $20/month level from yesterday.
Ideally, though, verification would be charged at-cost and separate from other premium services.

Now that the word is out: I’m helping out @elonmusk with Twitter temporarily with some other great people.
I ( and a16z) believe this is a hugely important company and can have great impact on the world and Elon is the person to make it happen. pic.twitter.com/weGwEp8oga

If Twitter offers a variety of verification options the revenue model will switch to recurring subscriptions and advertising becomes irrelevant.
Blue - Public Figures
Purple - Corporations
Green - Individuals
Orange - Anonymous
Pricing can vary by account type/characteristics

I think you have it backwards. Activists groups like everyone else, including twitter, are private citizens that are exercising their rights when they ask for ethical standards and moderation. If government did it, it would be monstrous.

Twitter employees, DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING when you're laid off.
Consult with an attorney first.
Buried in the fine print may be a waiver of your rights under CA and federal law.
Those rights are important and valuable!#TwitterLayoffs

Got fired without even a confirmation email while sleeping? There is always a new low. #twitter

The best of the rest.
Happy 14th birthday to Satoshi Nakamoto’s whitepaper! It has led to innovation and crypto asset investing. Let’s make sure as crypto enters its 15th year that investors get proper protection.
