You might have to suffer a little longer if you didn’t seize the opportunity to send Elon Musk $7.99 for a blue verification when you still had the chance. Musk announced Monday night that the item would be delayed until “there is a high certainty of preventing impersonation,” which was originally scheduled to debut on November 29.
The launch of Twitter Blue Verified, often known as the “I-paid-Elon-$7.99” blue check, was a complete disaster. Naturally, the feature was rapidly turned into a tool to aid criminals in disguising themselves as famous people, businesses, and government figures.
Twitter “will likely utilize different color checks for organizations than people,” Musk continued in his post. Although the “official” label beneath well-known profiles has previously been tested by Twitter. It has been switched on and off on numerous occasions since it was initially introduced.
One account claimed to be from the pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly and stated, “We are glad to inform you insulin is free now.” The tweet had millions of views before it was removed. The company’s stock dropped by 4.37%.
This week, according to Musk, Twitter added 1.6 million daily active users who are marketable, bringing the total to 259.4 million, a new high.
As some Twitter users test out competing websites like Mastodon and Hive, this has happened. It’s interesting to note that Musk fought a protracted court struggle after he realized that these same criteria were flawed and attempted to withdraw from his purchase of Twitter.
Twitter is a form of online messaging. It allows users to send comments that are no longer than 280 words in length. In the early twenty-first century, Twitter had a significant impact on politics and society.
A user creates a tweet and submits it to Twitter’s server, which then distributes it to the user’s followers. Especially, a group of users who have agreed to receive their messages.
Additionally, users have the option to choose to monitor particular topics by tapping on hashtags, starting a conversation. Also, increasing the number of followers in a particular Twitter feed into the millions.
