Elon Musk said that the twitter will attempt to announce this week a new account verification service, championed by the billionaire owner despite a botched and troubled earlier launch.
Musk said Twitter would use a new color system for verified accounts, building on the platform’s blue check mark.
Businesses will receive gold stamps and government accounts gray stamps, he said. All individuals, whether they are celebrities or not, would have blue checkmarks.
Starting next Friday, the 2nd, the company will add a checkmark to manually authenticated accounts.
He didn’t say whether users would have to pay to be verified. “Painful but necessary,” he said on Twitter.
