Twitter, under the command of Elon Musk, has made decisions that have been disliked by many. As if what has happened so far was not enough, soon it will be necessary to pay to do something as basic on Twitter as vote in polls.
Through a post on Twitter, Elon Musk announced that more changes are on the way to his social network. The first is that, soon, it will be necessary to have a verified account to be able to participate in the surveys. We remind you that the only way to verify yourself is by paying Twitter Blue.

According to Musk, this is a measure with which they seek to end the bots that are present on the website. Sadly, this isn’t the only related change either, as there will be changes to the For You tab as well.

Until now, the For You tab stood out as an algorithm-curated timeline for featuring tweets that might (or might not) interest you. Although it wasn’t the most popular thing on the site, users could visit it to see content similar to that of people they follow or topics that interest them.
Things will change from April 15. From that date, Twitter will make the For You tab only show posts from verified accounts. In this way, it will only recommend tweets from Twitter Blue subscribers, which could severely affect your experience. Especially when we consider that paying $5 USD per month will be enough to increase your visibility on Twitter.
Starting April 15, only verified accounts will be eligible to appear in For You recommendations.
It’s the only realistic way to deal with the flocks of AI bots that are taking over. Otherwise it is a battle we will lose.
Voting in the polls will require verification for the same reason,” Musk said.
