Although the billionaire SpaceX founder didn't disclose further details, technology newsletter Platformer announced Twitter might require users to subscribe to Twitter Blue if they want to keep their identity-verifying checkmarks.
Twitter Blue, launched last June, verifies users and offers "exclusive access to premium features," including the option to edit Tweets.
Additionally, The Verge reported that Twitter will increase the price of its Blue subscription from $4.99 to $19.99 per month.
Twitter Inc is up nearly 23% month over month.
