Elon Musk’s Twitter recently announced that it will soon end its legacy verification system and remove users’ blue checkmarks if they don’t pay for the Twitter Blue subscription service.

NBC News reports that Twitter has announced that it will end its legacy verification system that provided blue checkmarks to accounts deemed authentic and in the public interest. The social media firm revealed on Thursday that the former system will be phased out starting on April 1. The Twitter Blue subscription service, which was introduced last year, serves as the platform’s new verification system.

In the past, the verification program was created for notable people on Twitter, such as celebrities, government figures, journalists, and others, but was inconsistent and biased against conservatives. The verification of news feeds, fan accounts, parodies, and similar accounts was not permitted. However, the new Twitter Blue system will change the requirements for receiving a blue check mark by no longer requiring accounts to be accepted by leftist Silicon Valley employees.


According to the article, users can pay $8 a month to get their own blue check mark with Twitter Blue. Musk has said in the past that having a subscription service for the platform will reduce bot and trolling activity.

Twitter Verified tweeted Thursday, “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 Organizations can sign up for https://t.co/RlN5BbuGA3…”

Musk wrote on Friday, “Any individual person’s Twitter account affiliated with a verified organization is automatically verified.”
