After a short gap, Twitter relaunches its check mark for verified accounts. The modified system sports gold checkmarks for businesses and unique labels for official accounts. There are new criteria for users to receive a verified badge. The move aims to rectify Musk’s Blue Verified program that allowed the purchase of a blue checkmark for an $8 monthly subscription. The new launch stops users from impersonating famous accounts. The Blue Verified subscription program costs $8 per month for a web browser subscription. iOS app subscriptions will cost an additional $3. An extra sign-up process verifies if the account is complete, active, secure, and non-deceptive to combat impersonation. The gold checkmarks differentiate between verified businesses and verified individuals. An ‘Official’ label will apply for Government accounts.
