Twitter to Remove all Old Verification Badges


Alt: = "Elon Musk and Twitter verification checkmark"

Elon Musk has announced that old verification tick marks will be removed in the coming months due to the extensive modifications the microblogging platform has undergone since its takeover.

“Far too many corrupt legacy Blue ‘verification’ checkmarks exist, so no choice but to remove legacy Blue in coming months,” tweeted Mr Musk Thursday evening.

It’s assumed the new Blue verification badge will only be available to users who have subscribed for verification by paying the compulsory $8 monthly verification fee introduced by Elon Musk after taking over ownership of the microblogging platform.

Elon Musk has effected some radical changes to Twitter since he completed the takeover deal in October, such as  dissolving Twitter’s nine-member board of directors thereby becoming the sole director of the company,  mass layoffs of about 75 per cent of the company’s 7,500 workers, and about to end remote work in the firm.

The Tesla CEO has also announced that the social media platform would introduce some new features for “creator monetization for all forms of content."

Also, Twitter’s director of product management, Esther Crawford,  on Wednesday said that the social media platform would be adding a new feature of “official label” for some specified accounts, emphasising that the new feature will not be available for some previously verified profiles.

She explained that the accounts that will get the official label are strictly distinguished profiles.
