Twitter has blurred the difference between free and paid verified accounts.
The number of people who have subscribed to Twitter Blue is no longer distinguishable between legacy verified accounts and Twitter Blue subscribers.
Clicking on the blue tick opens the information box for more details about Twitter Blue subscribers and legacy verified accounts, stating, “This account is verified because it’s subscribed to Twitter Blue or is a legacy verified account.”
Twitter had previously announced that users would no longer be able to receive free blue ticks after April 1 unless they subscribed to Twitter Blue. It was noted, however, that several legacies verified accounts still had their blue ticks as of April 1.
The Twitter Blue pop-up has clearly distinguished between accounts that are subscribed to the service or were verified under the previous regime up until now.
With the new change, Twitter Blue subscribers benefit from the exclusivity and perceived disrepute they have been paying $8 monthly, while older verified accounts may lose the same opportunity.
Let’s see what more modifications Twitter will bring for all of us in the future.
