Twitter To Remove ‘Legacy’ Verified Ticks From April 1.
Twitter has recently announced that it will start removing blue ticks from legacy verified accounts, a move aimed at expanding its subscription-based program, Twitter Blue.
The social media platform has urged its users to sign up for the paid subscription service if they want to retain their blue checkmarks.
According to Twitter Verified, the legacy verified program will be phased out, and the blue ticks will be removed from April 1st.
Twitter Blue is a subscription-based program that offers users the coveted blue checkmark next to their profile name, among other features.
In the US, the monthly Twitter Blue subscription costs $11 on Android and iOS devices and $8 on the web.
It is worth noting that the blue tick was originally given to verified accounts of famous personalities, politicians, journalists, and public figures.
However, since the introduction of Twitter Blue, the blue tick can now be obtained by anyone by paying the subscription fee.
The move has been widely criticized, with many claiming that it undermines the integrity of the verification process.
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: https://t.co/gzpCcwOpLp
