Twitter’s CEO Elon Musk said on Tuesday that the relaunch of the 'Blue Verified' badge on Twitter will be temporarily suspended.
“Holding off relaunch of Blue Verified until there is high confidence of stopping impersonation,” Elon Musk said on Twitter.
Elon added that they would probably use different color checks for organizations than individuals.
Following the acquisition of Twitter by Elon Musk on October 28th, Musk told Twitter employees to introduce paid verification by November 7 through Twitter Blue.
A verified account is a highly sought-after qualification among Twitter users. Since Twitter alone can grant blue check marks, they can use them as a passive inducement for users to create more content. (ILKHA)
