Mark Ruffalo, actor known for playing the Hulk in the Avengers, used Twitter to ask Elon Musk, billionaire and the newest owner of the birther social network, to leave the company “for the love of decency.” Since Musk took over the company, much has changed in Twitter’s organizational structure.
Among the controversial decisions of the “Musk Era” is the firing of all the top executives, as well as more than half of the company’s workers. In addition, there is also the possibility of starting to charge $8 to keep the verified seal next to the name, which will allow anyone to have the icon and opens up a loophole for fake profiles.
Twitter’s current lords & peasants system for who has or doesn’t have a blue checkmark is bullshit.
Power to the people! Blue for $8/month.

These controversial decisions have managed to upset the actor, who has spoken out in his profile.
Elon. Please—for the love of decency—get off Twitter, hand the keys over to someone who does this as an actual job, and get on with running Tesla and SpaceX. You are destroying your credibility. It’s just not a good look. https://t.co/34aMtU5h62

“Elon. Please – for the love of decency – get off Twitter, hand the keys over to someone who does this as a real job, and keep running Tesla and SpaceX. You are destroying your credibility. It’s not good,” he wrote.
Despite the negative reaction from the community, the billionaire stood firm on his charge for the verified seal.
To all complainers, please continue complaining, but it will cost $8

“For everyone who is complaining, please keep complaining, but it will cost $8,” SpaceX CEO replied.
There is no official date released yet for this measure to go into effect.
