Twitter New Feature for Verified Users: Since the acquisition of Twitter, Elon Musk has been continuously making changes to it. First he kept the formula of $ 8 membership for blue tick. Now that high profile people are opposing it, they have found a middle ground. He said on Tuesday that the company would add an “official” label on a gray bar to high-profile accounts. This line will tell that the said profile is authentic. Musk has announced this decision in view of the fact that not every high profile user will necessarily pay for the blue tick. If forced, he can also leave this platform.
New system for those who do not pay 8 dollars
Let us tell you that the “blue tick” of verified users will now be available only for those who pay a monthly fee of $ 8. The platform’s current verification system is in place since 2009 and a team was formed to ensure this. This team used to check the verified request.
Only selected people will get the official label
Esther Crawford, a Twitter employee working on the verified overhaul, said on Twitter on Tuesday that the “official” label will be added to select accounts when the new system is rolled out. ‘Not all previously verified accounts will receive the ‘official’ label and the label is not available for purchase. Crawford said recipients of the label include government accounts, commercial companies, business partners, major media outlets, publishers and some public figures. There are approximately 423,000 verified accounts under the outgoing system, many of them associated with or outlets including celebrities, businesses and politicians, but a large proportion of verified accounts are related to individual journalists, some in local newspapers and around the world. News sites have small followers, the idea was to verify journalists so that their identities could be used.
