The US government has been angered by Musk’s attack on Corona adviser Fauci
Twitter CEO Elon Musk has called for the indictment of America’s Corona Advisor Anthony Fauci. The White House considers these reports alarming. A spokesman said they were “obnoxious and out of touch with reality”.
DThe US government has reacted angrily to Twitter boss Elon Musk’s attacks on its top coronavirus adviser, Anthony Fauci. White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre said Monday that Musk’s call to indict Fauci was “incredibly dangerous.” Musk’s statements on his online network were “obnoxious and disconnected from reality”.
On Sunday, Musk called for the impeachment of Fauci, who has advised the government since the start of the coronavirus pandemic in the United States in early 2020, and was strongly opposed by many on the right. The 81-year-old received several death threats. President Joe Biden’s top coronavirus adviser has announced he will retire this month.
The government’s criticism of Musk coincided with the Twitter boss’ new effort to launch paid subscriptions for users. The Twitter Blue service was launched in the first country on Monday. With this, users are requested to verify the verification of their user account with a white tick in the blue circle.
The tick, which indicates a user’s account has been verified by Twitter, was previously free and issued to politicians, celebrities, journalists and organizations. In the future, a paid subscription will be a prerequisite for a user’s desired verification tick on their account.
Twitter Blue is said to be significantly more expensive for iPhone users: “We’re relaunching @TwitterBlue on Monday – $8/month or $11/month on (Apple’s) iOS to subscribe on the web and access exclusive features. Blue is one tick,” the company previously tweeted.
After buying Twitter in October, new owner and billionaire Elon Musk said he wanted to expand the company’s revenue beyond advertising and create new paid offerings.
