Elon Musk might make “alternative” smartphones to battle with Apple and Android if needed

According to the sources, Elon Musk, the CEO of Twitter, stated on Saturday that in the event that the microblogging network is taken out of the app stores, he’s going to create “alternative” mobile phones to compete with Apple and Android handsets.

Relaunching the Colored Check Marks

In the meantime, Elon Musk claimed on Friday that Twitter intends to relaunch its premium service, which will provide accounts with various colored check marks, next week. This is a new attempt to modernize the service after an earlier attempt failed.

Due to a flurry of fake accounts, Twitter previously suspended the premium service, which under Musk gave blue-check labels to anyone paying $8 per month. To avoid impersonation, the blue check was initially handed to official organizations, businesses, celebrities, and journalists.

According to the most recent version, companies will receive a gold check, governments will receive a gray check, and everyone who pays for the service—celebrities included—would receive a blue check, Elon Musk stated on Friday.

Before the check activates, all verified accounts will undergo manual authentication, he explained, calling it “painful but necessary” and promised a “further explanation” the next week. On December 2, he stated, the service would “tentatively debut.”

Days after the redesigned premium service’s launch earlier this month, Twitter suspended it due to accounts impersonating various businesses and political and professional athletes as well as Eli Lilly and Co., a major pharmaceutical company, Nintendo, Lockheed Martin, and even Elon Musk’s own Tesla and SpaceX.

About Online Polls by Elon

In the last two days, there had only been one change. Following the results of an online survey he conducted on whether accounts that have not “broken the law or engaged in egregious spam” should be restored, Elon Musk declared on Thursday that he would offer “amnesty” for suspended accounts.

72% of voters chose yes. Such online surveys are far from scientific and are quite susceptible to manipulation by bots. Before reactivating former US President Donald Trump’s account, Musk also used one.

Online safety professionals believe the change would result in an increase in harassment, hate speech, and false information. Additionally, it’s likely to put the business on a collision course with European regulators’ efforts to stifle damaging online content with strict new regulations.
