Twitter is introducing a subscription model for verified users

Twitter is introducing a subscription model for verified users. This means that users who have a blue check mark next to their name will have to pay a monthly fee in order to maintain their verified status. The exact amount has not been determined yet, but it is rumored to be around $8 per month. This is a controversial move, as many people feel that verified users should not have to pay for their status. However, Twitter is hoping that this will generate more revenue and help to cut out some of the riff-raff from the platform.

This move by Twitter is sure to generate a lot of debate. Some people feel that verified users should not have to pay for their status, while others think that this could help to clean up the platform. Only time will tell how this new subscription model will affect Twitter.

Biden is introducing a plan to tax oil companies

Biden’s plan to tax oil companies is based on the premise that they are making excess profits and that this tax will incentivize them to lower prices for consumers. However, there are many flaws with this plan. First, it is unclear how the government will determine what is considered an “excess” profit. Second, even if the tax is implemented, there is no guarantee that oil companies will actually lower prices. In fact, it is more likely that they will simply pass the cost of the tax on to consumers through higher prices. Finally, the tax will only further incentivize oil companies to move away from traditional fossil fuels and towards cleaner energy sources.

It is also worth noting that this tax will likely have a disproportionate impact on small businesses and consumers in rural areas. This is because they are more likely to rely on oil for heating and transportation and will thus be hit harder by any price increases. In addition, the tax could lead to job losses in the oil industry, which would further harm the economy. Overall, Biden’s plan to tax oil companies is misguided and is unlikely to achieve its desired effect. It would be better to focus on other methods of incentivizing oil companies to move towards cleaner energy sources, such as investing in renewable energy research and development.

The price of oil is determined by global supply and demand

undefined – The government is going to take an average of the cost of oil from 2015 to 2019, and if any oil company exceeds that average, it will be taxed at a higher rate. This is supposed to incentivize oil companies to lower prices at the pump, but it is unclear how this will actually be implemented or enforced.

The government’s plan to tax oil companies that exceed the average price of oil from 2015 to 2019 is a step in the right direction, but it is unclear how this will actually be implemented or enforced. There needs to be more transparency and communication between the government and the oil companies in order to make this plan effective. Otherwise, it could end up being nothing more than a political ploy to score points with the public.
