In the flip flopping rollercoaster that’s the story of Twitter Blue, Musk has today announced the azure verified badge isn’t the sole verification badge that’s applied. Together with the traditional azure tick, there’ll now be grey and gold ticks for verified users, which includes governments and companies.
“Gold check for companies, grey check for governments, blue for people (celebrities or perhaps not). Unpleasant, but necessary,” tweeted Musk.
This action is an effort to stop the onslaught of parody accounts claiming to be businesses which triggered the stock crash of Eli Lilly wherein a parody account stated, “We are thrilled to announce insulin is free of charge now.”
Sticking to the chaos, Musk said that Twitter Blue will be halted temporarily. Prior to that suspension, any person could spend only $ 8 and become just about anybody they desired, highlighting the need for a real verification tick.
Accounts are going to now be physically given and checked the correct tick, while regular accounts will still have the blue tick.
