Musk has destroyed twitter, even decent contributors are suffering from ever dwindling engagement with their tweets if they don't have the blue tick, there's no point tweeting anything if your post gets lost in the wind and nobody sees it or engages with it.
I don't feel that selling out by getting a blue tick is the answer either, that's letting Musk win.
Twitter has around 450 million monthly active users as of 2023. It is estimated that this number will reach 652.23 million by 2028.
