twitter Elon Musk

As promised by CEO Elon Musk, Twitter has revealed a plan to discontinue the use of legacy verification blue checkmark badges starting next month.

The social media platform, which Musk acquired for $44 billion last year, announced on Thursday that, as of April 1, it would stop verifying accounts that were deemed noteworthy by Twitter prior to Musk’s acquisition.

That is, of course, unless they sign up for Twitter Blue or the enterprise-focused Twitter Verified Organizations plan, both of which will shortly replace other options for platform verification.

Twitter Blue costs $8 a month through the website in the United States or $11 per month with in-app purchases on iOS and Android.

The business additionally declared on Thursday that Twitter Blue was now accessible everywhere.


Twitter has adopted a gold checkmark for brand and company accounts as well as a grey checkmark for official government accounts under the newly reworked verification process.

According to the platform, gold or grey checkmark badges will run you $1,000 per month (plus tax) and $50 per month (plus tax) for any additional associated accounts.

In an effort to make it easier for users to distinguish profiles for celebrities, businesses, politicians, and news organizations “of public importance,” the social media network originally launched verified accounts in 2009 – at no cost at the time.
