What did Musk mention about the Twitter verification process?

When the billionaire took over Twitter, he began announcing new policies daily. After an April Twitter poll requested the ability to edit tweets, the feature went live earlier this month. Users who participated in the polls overwhelmingly favoured the ability to make changes.
Meanwhile, Musk denied rumours of laying off employees to avoid pay cuts. While this “official” designation would help prevent the spread of deliberate falsehoods.
