Do you have a blue checkmark and have not yet subscribed to Twitter Blue yet? Twitter accounts that were verified before Elon Musk bought the platform will soon lose the coveted blue check marks that were once handed out for free
Musk has said that the “legacy blue checks” on Twitter, the blue ticks on verified handles that have not subscribed to Twitter Blue, will be removed soon.
Musk announced that Twitter will remove the blue checkmarks given in the past to users to indicate “active, notable, and authentic accounts of public interest” verified by the platform.
Musk, in reply to a tweet questioning Twitter’s paid subscription model, said, “Legacy blue checks will be removed soon. Those are the ones that are truly corrupt.”
After Musk’s takeover, Twitter began distinguishing between free and paid blue checks by adding the message, “This is a legacy verified account. It may or may not be notable,” to accounts not subscribed to Twitter Blue, linking to a webpage outlining verification criteria for paying users.
Musk has previously attacked Twitter’s old notability-based verification process as “nonsensical.” In his four months in charge of Twitter, Musk has made several polarizing changes to the company and the site in an effort to cut costs and rid the company of what Musk has described as a liberal bias in content moderation
