Elon Musk confirms to relaunch Twitter Blue check subscription next week

Elon Musk on Friday said that Twitter Blue, the company's premium subscription service for verification, is expected to launch on December 2. Earlier, Musk promised that the launch date will be on November 29 but later deferred it indefinitely. He also shared some details about the verification system.

In response to a tweet, Musk assured that Twitter will be tentatively launching Verified next week. In the tweet, he said, “Sorry for the delay, we’re tentatively launching Verified on Friday next week.”

He explained the new colour coding system for the verified ticks. Musk, in his tweet said, “Gold check for companies, grey check for government, blue for individuals (celebrity or not) and all verified accounts will be manually authenticated before check activates. Painful, but necessary.”

According to the report, the complete system will be revealed next week. Now, under Musk's revamp plans, this blue-tick verification was brought under the Twitter Blue plan, whose price is $7.99 per month. Musk claimed that this would reduce bots and fake accounts on the platform.
