Twitter Blue probably won’t be back by the end of this month anyway. Twitter owner Elon Musk said in a tweet on the night from Monday to Tuesday that the service, in which paying users received a blue check mark, will only be launched again when there is enough certainty that people cannot imitate celebrities and companies if they check the box. can buy. Musk also said organizations are likely to get a different colored check mark than individuals.

Musk previously mentioned November 29 as the date on which Twitter users could sign up for the subscription service again. However, new accounts would then have to wait ninety days before they can use the service.

Until recently, the blue checkmark was reserved for users that Twitter knew for certain that it was them, such as government departments, politicians, companies, artists and journalists. Twitter determined who received such a symbol and handed out the check marks for free. After Musk’s takeover of Twitter, the billionaire promised anyone could get a blue check if they paid for it. That would democratize the service.

After its introduction, many people took advantage of the blue tick by changing their name to resemble that of a company or celebrity. This is how people imitated Musk himself, President Joe Biden and basketball player LeBron James. After a few days, Twitter closed registrations for Twitter Blue.
