Initially, Twitter’s new owner, Elon Musk, expected to return the Twitter Blue subscription with blue ticks by November 29, but now he had to revise not only the terms of the subscription, but also the terms of its renewal. In addition to gray and blue ticks, gold ones will also appear in Twitter account descriptions, the billionaire said. They will appear on the social network pages on December 2nd.
As noted ReutersFrom the statements of the head of Twitter on the social network’s pages, it became known that the verification symbols in user accounts are distributed as follows: companies get gold ticks, government organizations get gray ticks, and individuals have blue ticks. In the latter case, no distinction is made between celebrities and regular users, as Elon Musk clarified. He added that these changes will be painful but necessary.
Remember that the first attempt to return the blue ticks to all Twitter Blue subscribers willing to pay $ 8 a month literally failed in the first hours of implementation of this initiative, since the social network with “Scammers” who pretended not to do this just to be famous people, including Elon Musk, but also representatives of big companies. The latter even suffered some reputational damage, losing millions of dollars in capitalization at the moment.
Before the tick of the desired color appears in the account description, it is manually verified by Twitter staff. Private users can receive an additional account designation, which indicates that a person belongs to a specific organization. The CEO promised more detailed explanations next week.
