Twitter will start authenticating accounts manually soon. Likewise, the platform will distribute different colors to the check seals, according to the profile category.
He announced the news through a post on his official profile. According to the new owner of the blue bird net, the stamps in gold color will be destined to the company, while the accounts of government institutions will have the item in gray color. Finally, ordinary people will have the verified in blue color.
Sorry for the delay, we’re tentatively launching Verified on Friday next week.
Gold check for companies, grey check for government, blue for individuals (celebrity or not) and all verified accounts will be manually authenticated before check activates.
Painful, but necessary. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk)November 25, 2022
Musk spoke in detail about the feature in response to another user and this was the first time he detailed something about the idea, which was mentioned by him earlier. The owner of Twitter also stated that the measure is necessary, although painful. It is worth remembering that the network charges US$ 8 for the seal of verified, an attitude that has generated controversy in recent weeks.
According to Elon Musk, more details will be revealed over the next week, while the implementation of the new verified seals is expected to take place next Friday. Finally, he states that account cases pretending to be other people should not happen again.
The social network has experienced some turbulent times in recent days, with hundreds of employees leaving the platform staff after an ultimatum from the billionaire. Now, it remains to be seen whether the situation will normalize with this and other implementations to come.
