Lords and PeasantsTwitter’s current lords & peasants system for who has or doesn’t have a blue checkmark is bullshit. Power to the people! Blue for $8/month.
Vitalik’s TakeHow well this works depends on exactly how much due diligence is done to make sure blue checks are who they say they are. "Pay $8/month and call yourself whatever" would damage the blue check's anti-scam role. But if there's more actual verification, the result is very different.Twitter’s current lords & peasants system for who has or doesn’t have a blue checkmark is bullshit. Power to the people!

Erik Voorhees TakeLet's remember that charging $8 for premium Twitter experience means Twitter becomes the product again, instead of you. And if $8 is too much, you're free to remain as the product.
Entitled EliteThe entitled elite is not mad that they have to pay $8/month. They’re mad that anyone can pay $8/month.
