Twitter is adding gold checkmarks for official brand accounts. Also Twitter is adding gray ticks for ‘government and multilateral’ accounts.
“we’ll begin replacing that “official” label with a gold checkmark for businesses, and later in the week a grey checkmark for government and multilateral accounts” – Twitter said.
Twitter’s paid-for verification feature is rolling out once again on Monday. It was paused last month after being swamped by impersonators.
It is still $8 per month – but there is now an increased fee of $11 for those using the Twitter app on Apple devices.
Twitter’s owner Elon Musk has previously said in tweets that he resents the commission fee Apple charges on in-app purchases.
Twitter Blue’s additional features include an edit button.
