Twitter is not the same anymore that we used to know about. After swiping it from former CEO Parag Agarwal at a deal of $42 million, Elon Musk surprised many Twitter users with a new features ceremony.

The features ain’t lived yet, but soon it will yield.

The world’s richest man, in an event, made a slew of announcements after a week of taking over the popular social networking channel that users would need to pay for verification to propose a revival of the video platform Vine.

Along with other major highlights, mentioned in this blog.

What is Vine?

Elon Musk Twitter takeover surprisingly genesis old disowned Twitter feature “Vine” is a video hosting service providing users to create six-second-long looping video clips.

In October 2016, Twitter said that it would disable all uploads, however, users can view Vine shots but not be able to post a video using Vine services.

Now, this old discontinued feature is invigorating.

Let’s eye on the big changes coming to Twitter 🧐

1. Bringing back banned accounts

Twitter is now private to Elon Musk since he took over at a big value. This testimony resulted in major changes in Twitter’s social platform.

For now, the biggest hype is restoring banned accounts that were long AWOL due to violating the site’s content moderation rules.

Remember, Donald Trump was de-platformed from Twitter in light of the impelling keep going year assault on the US Legislative center by a horde looking to upset the consequences of the 2020 political decision.

But this is not easy to do.

I mean Twitter will not allow anyone that previously de-platformed for violating rules back on the platform until they create a clear process for doing so.

This also clears that Musk has to wait for more until after the crucial 8 November midterm elections in the United States.

2. Paying for blue tick, direct messaging

The small, round blue tick is now for $8/month, according to the latest Elon tweet.

“Power to the people! Blue for $8/month” tweeted this Tuesday by Elon Musk.

He notified the public that the plan would overthrow the platform’s “current lords & peasants system” and develop a new revenue stream for the company.

However, whatever the plan for glorification, the news obsessed many Twitter users, aggressively.

Jane Machun Wong, a security researcher and blogger tweeted “Twitter is working on Paid DMs” this afternoon.

3. Free edit button

In addition to offering security and more privilege, users can edit tweets by paying a sum.

In the program making Twitter a new experience, the community will provide a free edit button feature to people who pay $5 per month in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

However, it is not deployed as it is in practice since Musk put up a poll asking his followers if they were in favor of such a feature.

4. Reviving Vine

At last, in the context of Elon Musk taking over Twitter changes, we have Vine to talk about.

Recall, when Vine was the hottest feature that Twitter ever brought.
