Elon Musk, the head of Twitter, has stated that the company will start eliminating Twitter-verified checks from handles starting on April 20th, unless you are paying for it. Users with confirmed handles no longer have the blue check mark because it has begun to remove it.
Elon Musk had been alerting consumers for months that he would be doing rid of “legacy blue checks.” On April 12, he tweeted that as of April 20, any users who had not paid for verification would lose their verified badges. He also posted and then deleted a message saying that vintage verified accounts would have a few weeks of grace, but only if they indicated they would pay.
On Twitter, verified accounts were previously identified by a blue checkmark. Accounts from journalists, media organizations, and celebrities received this rating.
However, it appears that Twitter is now verifying accounts via a paid service called Twitter Blue.
The blue check mark was taken away from a number of famous people and high-profile figures, including football legend Christiano Ronaldo. Right now, verified Twitter accounts now show a new message indicating that the user is verified because they are subscribed to Twitter Blue and have verified their phone number.
How Much Does Twitter Verification Cost?
1. Longer videos, prioritized chat rankings, and bold/italic text options are some of the latest additions to the premium service. Existing Blue features like Edit Tweet and Bookmark Folders will still be available.
- Users can now compose tweets of up to 10,000 characters, edit them up to five times in a 30-minute period, and use an NFT as their profile photo. Originally offered in 50 countries, this subscription is now accessible to people all around the world.
When registering online with a web browser, Twitter Blue is a global service that costs US$8 per month. However, while utilizing Twitter on iOS or Android, users must make an in-app purchase of US$11.
