Is Elon Musk Charging for Using They/Them Pronouns on Twitter?

Twitter has frozen some of its moderating tools a week after being purchased by its new owner Elon Musk, and it may change or eliminate policies pertaining to hate speech on the site, particularly misgendering and anti-transphobic rhetoric.

Since Musk acquired Twitter, there are reports that the owner would charge $16 for they/them pronouns in addition to the $8 monthly fee for remaining verified on Twitter, which is soon to be implemented. He has been very outspoken about a few adjustments that will be made to the platform.

Although there have been modifications, there have also been a number of rumors that have contributed to the spread of false information on the site.

Elon Musk is not charging for using They/Them pronouns

When a lot of people start chatting about something, humor can occasionally get lost in sentences. Sadly, one contributing element came along when it seemed like many individuals fell for deception.

However, the claims that Musk would charge more for the pronouns are false. The rumors surfaced when a famous podcaster Elijah Schaffer made a joke about how Musk will charge those who use they/them pronouns a sum of $16 or double the current rate.

The podcaster tweeted, “@elonmusk says journalists with “they/them” pronouns in bio will pay a $16 monthly fee instead of the standard $8 for verification because “they” identify as multiple people.”

Many fans were in disbelief, while a few of them were sarcastic and replied to Schaffer’s tweet. A fan jokingly replied, “I would pay $24 if he retweeted this”.

Another follower responded, “Oh boy. NOT A SMART MOVE, Elon. Not very smart of you to go after the LBGTQ folks (and the people who love them). You might want to walk this one back.”

It is clear from Schaffer’s account that it is a running joke because his handle also reads, “$8 is $8,” alongside a pointing finger emoji pointing toward the blue checkmark. Sadly, only a few people understood the joke.

Elon Musk launches $8 monthly Twitter subscription to stay verified

The allegations that you must pay $16 for they/them pronouns were inspired by Musk’s declaration that users will have to pay an $8 monthly fee in order to maintain their platform verification.

Many people criticized his choice, but the owner of the Tesla was eager to defend it. The rates for subscriptions, according to Musk, will be adjusted per nation proportionate to purchasing power parity.

In addition, he made a note of the fact that the monthly membership will be priced similarly to a Starbucks purchase.

Verified users will enjoy a few benefits in particular. According to Musk, verified users will be given preference in answers, mentions, and searches. This is carried out to ensure that the platform receives fewer spam communications.

Users will also have half as much advertising as other users while having the option to post lengthy films and audio on the platform freely.

Did Cynthia Parker And Boyfriend Spencer List Break Up?

Cynthia Parker and her boyfriend Spencer List, the popular couple on TikTok, have been the talk of the town recently. 

Fans are speculating if the pair have broken up, as Parker recently removed her TikTok videos of her with List from her second TikTok account under the handle @dudewhoscynthiaparker.

This move has left fans wondering if their favorite couple has split. However, some fans have come to the couple’s defense, suggesting that the removal of the videos might not be an indication of a breakup.

This isn’t an uncommon practice among TikTok content creators, and it doesn’t necessarily mean that there’s anything wrong with the relationship.

A fan claimed, “Cynthia tends to take videos down after a bit, probs nothing.”

Another fan wrote, “Ever think maybe they want to go back to being private? Can’t blame her because some people on tiktok don’t know how to be sensible.?? Why always assume they broke up?”

Another interesting point to consider is that the TikToker and her 24-year-old beau still follow each other on Instagram. This might be another indication that they are still together and that their relationship is still going strong.

Despite the fans’ speculations, neither the social media personality nor her boyfriend has come forward to address the rumors of their alleged breakup.

Parker’s activity has only fueled the rumors further, leaving fans to wonder what really happened between the two. 

Cynthia Parker and Spencer List confirmed their relationship on March 2023 

Parker initially confirmed she was in a relationship via an Instagram story on March 2, 2023, but at the time, the identity of her new boyfriend was a mystery. 

This news had fans speculating about who the lucky guy might be and waiting eagerly for more details.

However, it wasn’t until March 12, 2023, that the couple finally made their relationship official with the TikTok video that showed them sharing a kiss. 

The video showed Parker applying lipstick before List entered the frame, and the two shared a passionate kiss set to a romantic song. 

Fans were quick to express their excitement and happiness for the couple, who have been rumored to be dating for quite some time.

However, while most of the fans are thrilled about Parker and List’s relationship, some people criticized the couple for their age difference. 

The online personality is only 18 years old, while List is 24, which means there is nearly a six-year age gap between them. 

This age difference has sparked controversy among some fans, with some people feeling that it is inappropriate for a 24-year-old to be dating an 18-year-old.
