Twitter to launch gold, grey checks alongside blue verified mark
2 days ago
SAN FRANCISCO: Twitter will roll out verified gold and grey check marks as it relaunches the coveted blue check service next Friday, chief executive officer Elon Musk said in a tweet, after holding off the rollout earlier this week.
“Gold check for companies, grey check for governments, blue for individuals (celebrities or not). Painful, but necessary,” Musk said in a tweet.
All verified accounts will be manually authenticated before the check is activated, Musk said.
“Individuals can have a secondary tiny logo to show they belong to an organisation if verified as such by that organisation,” Musk said in another tweet, adding that he will give a longer explanation next week.
