By the way, it’s very likely that Meta started working on this paid verification / premium B2B feature before Musk did and one of his SV buddies in the know just told him, „Look, Zuck is working on this thing. Do that on Twitter too.“

It is better thought out, unsurprisingly. (The more you compare the two, the more „Twitter Blue“ looks like the clown version of this, fittingly.)

Meta Verfified reminds me of something similar at Google Maps where you pay a fee for having your small local shop verified etc.
