New Twitter owner Elon Musk discusses with his advisors the introduction of new paid features on the service. For example, personal messages that could be sent to popular social network users. According to The New York Times, citing sources, it will be possible to write such messages “for a nominal fee”, the exact amount is unknown.

The SearchEngine reports that over the past week, the new owner of Twitter and his advisers instructed the team of the service to brainstorm to gather ideas “that could quickly bring money.” In particular, the launch of paywalled video and the “resurrection” of the Vine app to appeal to a younger audience are also being discussed. Recall that Twitter bought Vine in 2012, and in 2017 the application stopped working.

NIX Solutions notes that earlier it became known that Musk plans to raise the cost of a Twitter Blue subscription to $20. It will include monthly verification and verified users will have 90 days to sign up or lose the blue checkmark. Developers are ordered to complete the project by November 7th.
