Stephen King requests my Twitter blue tick for charity. Musk responds 2023

Stephen King has a suggestion for Elon Musk, the CEO of Twitter, following the chaos caused by the removal and reinstatement of blue ticks for legacy accounts and specific personalities.

The author, who had rejected Musk’s paid subscription plan and whose blue check appears to be sponsored by Musk, tweeted on Saturday that the funds used for his verification should be donated to charity.

In addition to recommending that Musk investigate a foundation that provides aid to war-ravaged Ukraine, he suggested that Musk could increase the donation amount since the paid blue mark cost only $8.

He wrote, “Mr. Musk ought to donate my blue check to charity. The Prytula Foundation, which provides lifesaving services in Ukraine, comes highly recommended. It’s only $8, so Mr. Musk could possibly add a bit more.”

Musk retaliated against the American author by proclaiming his ‘$100 million donation to Ukraine’ and questioning the author’s contribution.

Sunday, he replied, “I’ve donated $100 million to Ukraine; how much have you donated?”

After Musk’s ‘4/20 deadline’ to eliminate legacy blue checks arrived, he revealed that he is “personally paying” to keep the coveted mark for LeBron James, Martin Luther King, and William Shatner.

This was discovered after King tweeted that his account was subscribed to Twitter Blue without payment, to which Musk replied, “thank you and namaste.”

The Twitter CEO has reportedly reinstated the blue badge for individuals with over one million followers. The action is significant as Indian celebrities and politicians, including Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, and Rahul Gandhi, lost their verified blue ticks on Twitter this week. The blue marks have made an unexpected return to the accounts of these celebrities. Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli have regained the blue checkmark on their Twitter handles.

Chadwick Boseman, Kobe Bryant, and Michael Jackson are among the deceased luminaries whose accounts have regained the blue checkmark.
