Elon Musk Will Launch Multicolored Twitter Verification Icons

02:52 PM November 29, 2022

Twitter CEO Elon Musk announced that he would launch new verification icons soon. They will come in three colors: gold, grey, and blue.

The gold tick marks are for companies, while government officials will receive grey checks. Meanwhile, individuals will get blue checkmarks if they pay the $8 monthly subscription.

Musk also tweeted that his company would manually verify accounts before giving the Twitter verification icons.

Elon Musk explained the Twitter ticks while responding to a user named “Crypto King.” The latter said, “Elon, I’m trying. It won’t let me, and I’m Verified (need to edit 1 character I can’t spell).”

FEATURED STORIES

Musk replied, “Sorry for the delay. We’re tentatively launching Verified on Friday next week. 

“Gold check for companies, grey check for government, blue for individuals (celebrity or not), and all verified accounts will be manually authenticated before check activates.”

The CEO added that individuals could have an additional logo that shows that they belong to a specific organization.

That group must confirm the applicant as a member. However, he did not explain many details about how he would roll out the new Twitter verification icons.

Elon Musk canceled the Twitter Blue program as it enabled many people to impersonate prominent celebrities and businesses.

He said Twitter would resume the subscription service on November 29. However, newly created accounts would have to wait 90 days before they can pay for Twitter Blue. 

Will that launch along with the new verification checkmarks? Musk said he would share more details next week.

Still, the new feature may have a rocky start due to the recent layoffs. Elon Musk removed nearly half of Twitter’s workforce after acquiring the company.

Sinead McSweeney, global vice president for public policy, said she had to work 75 hours a week after Musk fired many people.

Conclusion

Elon Musk plans to improve Twitter by offering multicolored verification icons. However, the platform’s other issues also require attention.

For example, McSweeney claims she could not access her work accounts. Twitter lawyers said she would get her access back, but she has not at the time of writing.

In response, Twitter users quit the platform and chose BeReal and Mastodon as alternatives. You may learn more about them at Inquirer Tech.
