Elon Musk, Twitter’s new CEO, has hinted that the legacy blue “verified” checkmark system on Twitter may be phased out soon. According to reports, the social media platform currently differentiates between free and paid blue checks with a message that says, “This is a legacy verified account. It may or may not be notable.”
The Blue Check Verification
The blue check mechanism on Twitter is a well-known verification technique. By demonstrating that the person behind a particular account is actual and not just a bot or automated software, the aforementioned functionality aids users in differentiating between legitimate and false accounts. Even though it has been in the news frequently since 2019, the aforementioned feature has been around since 2019.
The controversial Twitter Blue service was purportedly criticized by a Twitter user, to whom the Twitter CEO appeared to have responded. According to reports, Musk responded to the criticism by saying that “Legacy blue checks will be eliminated soon.” The aforementioned service was claimed to cost between $8 and $11 per month. These are the real corrupt individuals.
In the fourth quarter of 2022, Elon Musk successfully purchased Twitter for around $44 billion. Since that time, the new CEO has been busy adjusting the features and functionality of social networking networks. The extensive verification, according to a recent tweet from Musk, will “democratize journalism” and “empower the voice of the people.”
The aforementioned paid verification was introduced in the fourth quarter of 2022, shortly after Elon Musk seized control of the social media network. However, the aforementioned paid verification procedure did not operate properly because a plethora of profiles mocking famous people and organizations swamped the social networking platform.
One of the well-known features of the aforementioned Twitter Blue subscription is purportedly the ability for users to modify their tweets, send longer tweets, as well HD videos. Additionally, the aforementioned paid subscription includes Navigation Icon, NFT Profile Picture, Theme, and Organize Bookmark.
