You may have read in the media that Elon Musk is now selling Twitter's blue-tick verification for a monthly subscription price.What you might not have read about is Musk’s stick to this carrot: like a canny gangster, Twitter has begun robbing its users’ technical security, before, seconds later, offering to replace it… for a tidy sum.On Wednesday (March 22), Team MBW received the following email from Twitter informing us that our Music Business Worldwide profile no longer enjoyed two-factor authentication.Guess how one reinstates mobile two-factor authentication on Twitter? Yup: Start paying Elon for a monthly subscription.This is Musk playing hardball: “How much do you value the security of your Twitter account? Are you willing to risk being hacked and unmentionables being tweeted out in your name? If not, pay up.”So, begrudgingly, we’ve had to.There’s a wider business lesson to be learned here: Elon Musk’s stone-hearted decision to start selling an essential service benefit that we’ve long grown accustomed to having for free.That idea, in turn, has brought to mind the Good Ship Spotify, and a fascinating slide from one particular presentation at SXSW in Austin last week... (MBW Reacts)

“Something Special” is happening! . .


After a brief sabbatical Phil Salter is back with some new recordings of his own original songs. “Something Special” is an inspirational song about believing in your dreams, and that anything is possible in life. 


The song reminds the listener of how they might have felt when they were a kid, when they felt that they were invincible, that they could “fish in puddles” and actually catch a fish, because no one had yet told them that it wasn’t possible!


“You can be more than you want to be, and more than you dreamed!”
