Elon Musk says it is 'inevitable' that Mark Zuckerberg would roll out Meta Verified after Twitter started making subscribers pay

Only hours after the launch of the new "Meta Verified" membership service,

Elon Musk stated it was "inevitable" that Meta would follow Twitter's lead and start charging for verified statuses.

Musk was responding to a tweet that claimed Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg copied Twitter by charging for user verification statuses.

Since taking over as CEO of Twitter in October 2022, Musk has been implementing monetization programmes at the social media platform.

According to Zuckerberg on Sunday, the verified paid subscription plan for Facebook and Instagram through Meta starts at $11.99 per month if ordered online.

He added that subscribers will get more impersonation protection and direct access to customer service.

This new feature is about boosting authenticity and security throughout our services," he said.

This week, Meta will begin launching the service in Australia and New Zealand.

Social media expert Matt Navarra told Joyti Mann of Insider on Sunday that it makes sense for Meta to launch its verification programme.
