Twitter returns with grey marks after Musk says several corrupt Blue accounts have been ‘verified’.
After Elon Musk’s much-discussed attempt to change the App account verification system to a paid two-tier model, the CEO decided to go back to the original grey check mark for verified accounts.
Musk announced yesterday in a tweet, citing too many corrupted blue “checkmarks” as the reason for removing them. Until yesterday, Twitter’s blue checkmarks could be purchased for $7.99 per month, prompting users to create fake accounts posing as brands and people.
Just this week, company chief product officer Esther Crawford said grey checks will go back “to government and commercial agencies to begin with.” Coca-Cola, Twitter, Wired and Ars Technica are some of the brands that have recovered the grey marks on the social platform.
