Twitter revises verification system: preserve your checkmark with Twitter Blue subscription

Oleksandr Bud

Starting April 1st, Twitter will be conducting a review of old blue verification checkmarks and revoking their validity for accounts that obtained verified status before the social network was acquired by Elon Musk. Users who wish to maintain their verification can take advantage of the paid Twitter Blue subscription.

Musk had mentioned plans to phase out old checkmarks back in December. Before his arrival, verification was issued for free, confirming the authenticity of accounts.

Now, in order to obtain verification, users need to subscribe to Twitter Blue. The subscription costs $8 per month for desktop users and $11 for mobile users.

Verification checkmarks now come in different colors: blue for private individuals, gold for large corporations, and gray for government organizations.

Subscribing to Twitter Blue also offers other benefits, such as the ability to create longer tweets, edit them, and cancel them.
