Twitter Removes Blue Checkmark From Famous Twitter Accounts!

Twitter removes blue checkmark

Twitter removes the blue checkmark from some notable Twitter accounts. The news came as a surprise as brands and celebrities were unable to find their Twitter verification on their account. This seems to be a step toward Elon Musk’s long-term goals for the social media platform. Of course, most people will not welcome this change, as it takes away their favorite badge of superiority.

Several journalists, politicians, brands, celebrities, and more have confirmed the change. However, the sign will not disappear permanently, with some Twitter users reporting that the sign appears when they reload the page. The verification system is in place to ensure that only genuine Twitter users are using a particular account.

Twitter Removes Blue Checkmark From Known Twitter Accounts:

This is a surprising move as Twitter already charges users $8 per month for the blue Twitter sign. In the past, Twitter’s new CEO has been very vocal about calling the legendary verification system “corrupt,” “bullshit,” and a “lords and peasants system.” In the past, famous celebrities and journalists were given blue tags by default.

The best part is that the rating does not take into account how many followers you have or how famous you are. The company has been hinting at removing the old blue tick since 11 April. Earlier, Twitter announced that it would be shutting down its legacy verified program on April 1. The company has been phasing out the blue tick since April 1.

History of Twitter’s Verification System:

Twitter introduced the legendary Blue Checkmark more than a decade ago in response to lawsuits and criticism. Celebrities were very unhappy as several fake accounts impersonated them on Twitter. Although the system still needs a lot of improvement, it has somehow put an end to false news. The blue tick looks more like an endorsement from Twitter.

Elon Musk’s decision to make money by giving away the Blue Checkmark is an absolutely misguided one. The reason is that anyone can pay that amount of money to get Twitter’s Blue Checkmark. Therefore, it is easy for bad people to convey misinformation.
