After announcing that Twitter will give a blue tick to users who pay the stipulated amount despite their celebrity status, the new boss of the social media platform halted the process due to some lapses in his proposed idea.
However, the world’s richest man has now come up with a new multicoloured verification system for Twitter users. Elon Musk said that the social network will tentatively roll out this new process next week.
Under this scheme, companies will get a gold checkmark, government officials will get a grey checkmark and the blue checkmark will be given to individuals even if they are not celebrities. This means that people who pay $8 per month will be assigned blue tick marks.
