Gun control activist David Hogg fired back at Twitter CEO Elon Musk over his plan to charge “blue check” users to retain their verification.

The liberal activist blasted musk’s plans to introduce the payment plan on the platform, saying that people like himself should be paid by Twitter instead.

“Verified people are a major reason why many people are on Twitter in the first place. If anything they should be paying us,” Hogg said.

“Verified accounts bring people to Twitter and help with ad revenue,” he said.

“Many other social platforms pay content makers,” Mr. Hogg said.

“Twitter is one of the few that doesn’t,” he added, claiming that this is in part because Twitter isn’t as good a platform as Instagram for posting about one’s daily life.

“Imagine being this entitled while producing nothing of value for society,” the Texas Republican wrote on Twitter in reply to David Hogg.

As The Daily Fetched reported on Tuesday:

Musk is putting his employees to work with their first primary task of introducing a $20 per month subscription to blue checkmark accounts to keep their verification.

Musk wants developers to alter Twitter Blue, the company’s $4.99 per month subscription program, into a more expensive subscription that verifies users.

Verified users have 90 days to subscribe to the program or lose their blue checkmark.

Employees must meet a deadline of November 7 to launch the features or join the unemployment queue, The Verge reports.

Musk said earlier he planned to change how Twitter verifies accounts and handles bot accounts.

Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter saw the billionaire take immediate steps to fire several top executives from the platform, sparking a spectacular meltdown from the left.

Musk fired CEO Parag Agrawal, CFO Ned Segal, and head of legal policy, trust, and safety Vijaya Gadde, after he accused them of misleading him and investors over the number of bot accounts, Fox News reported.
