Who will have the last laugh when Musk plays with the credibility of Twitter?

Under new owner Elon Musk, Twitter's finely built infosphere appears to be rushing back toward chaotic cacophony. 

The billionaire prefers anyone pay him $8/m to have their account on his microblogging social network badged with a check-mark that looks like the old Twitter verification check 

but does not involve Musk's Twitter checking they are who they say they are. The billionaire is neither a fan of meritocratic signals nor, it seems, a friend to genuine information.

Now, users must click on the check symbol next to an account name and read the small print that pops up. It will either read: "This account is verified 

because it's notable in government, news, entertainment, or another designated category" (i.e., it's pre-Musk Twitter verified);

or "Twitter has verified this account as being you; this is a legacy verification of your identity" (aka, not verified; but yes probably a Musk super fan).
