Kenyans verified on Twitter will be able to post long videos and audio files rather than the standard two minutes in special features to be introduced by billionaire Elon Musk.
In a statement dated November 2, the world's richest man indicated that he was planning on rolling out the special features for those who pay Ksh970 for the blue badges.
Other special features to be enjoyed by verified individuals include priorities in replies, mentions and searches.
They will also see fewer advertisements on their pages than other Twitter users.
Kenyans will also enjoy access to news articles and blog posts for free through a paywall bypass.
"There will be a secondary tag below the name for someone who is a public figure, which is already the case for politicians," Musk stated.
Additionally, he explained his move to charge for the verification amidst uproar over the high monthly cost of Ksh970.
"This will also give Twitter a revenue stream to reward content creators," he stated.
However, he noted that the monthly charge would be adjusted depending on the economic factors of a given country.
The billionaire behind the electric car, Tesla, made the statement days after acquiring the global social media platform.
However, the move to have tweeps pay for verification has seen a section of notable Kenyans oppose the move, given that they enjoyed the service for free.
"If you persist, we will organise a mass exodus from Twitter and turn your investment into a nightmare! Continue pushing us," Lawyer Miguna Miguna stated.
