Twitter’s blue check subscription service will relaunch on November 29, a slight delay from Elon Musk’s initial plan to bring the service back.
“Punting relaunch of Blue Verified to November 29th to make sure that it is rock solid,” Musk said in a tweet.
In light of the release, changing a verified user’s name will not make that name’s blue checkmark visible.
Prior to now, politicians, celebrities, journalists, and other public figures were the only ones to receive the blue check mark.
As Elon Musk fights to retain advertisers, Twitter launched a subscription option for everyone who is willing to pay earlier this week to help the company grow revenue.
A week ago, Tesla’s Chief had predicted that Twitter Blue would probably return the following week.
Twitter paused its recently announced $8 blue check subscription service on Friday after fake accounts mushroomed. Musk acquired Twitter in a $44 billion deal last week.
Verified accounts are a unique and powerful asset on social media. These accounts show that the company is legitimate, and their messages will be taken more seriously than non-verified accounts.
However, there has been a recent spike in fake Twitter verified accounts with blue check marks, which can make it difficult to tell who is real or not.
Some people have verified their accounts that represent some of the world’s top brands. One of the users has verified his account naming Elon Musk.
