In a major development to the ongoing Twitter Blue paid subscription saga, the Elon Musk-led social media platform has announced the removal of ‘legacy verified checkmarks.’ Twitter has declared that from April 1, all accounts who had a blue tick/verified checkmark before the launch of Twitter Blue will have to lose their verified status.
However, there is a catch! Twitter has given a solution as to how these accounts can keep their blue tick intact. And as expected, the answer is simple – subscribe to Twitter Blue!
To retain their blue tick, legacy Twitter Verified account holders must subscribe to Twitter Blue before the deadline. In an official announcement made via Twitter, it was stated, “On April 1st, we will begin winding down our legacy verified program and removing legacy verified checkmarks. To keep your blue checkmark on Twitter, individuals can sign up for Twitter Blue here: ….”
Notably, Twitter has also reminded all organizations with a blue tick to sign up and subscribe to Twitter Blue if they want to keep their blue tick. However, the link for the same is different.
Twitter Blue has been a flagship change by the social media company ever since Elon Musk took over. Despite the different costs of the service in different places, it is now becoming a go-to feature for many.
In conclusion, if you want to keep your blue tick on Twitter, it’s time to subscribe to Twitter Blue before April 1!
