Towards the end of last year, businessman Elon Musk went through with purchasing Twitter.
For some time, Musk’s acquisition of the platform was up in the air. This was mainly a result of various bots on the site and other issues that caused Musk and the then-owners of the platform to butt heads.
Twitter has seen some significant changes with Musk now running the forum. For starters, the checkmark system has adjusted. Those who want to keep blue checkmarks or others have to pay a monthly fee.
Musk has also stated he’s committed to getting more users on Twitter and increasing its profitability. Though in a recent interview, the businessman sounded off against the way Twitter’s previous owners ran the site, according to the New York Post.
