Twitter now has a new CEO, Elon Musk. Also with this change, many small and significant changes have come up. But these changes also have raised confusion and questions in the minds of people. The new blue verification tick to anyone who pays $7.99 comes with clouds of questions with it.
Now the company has brought a solution for raising questions about how to distinguish between a legitimate account of a public figure and any account that has paid for the blue tick. The issue is finally addressed. Now in addition to the paid blue check, the selected accounts will also get a new ‘Official’ grey-coloured checkmark on their profiles. This will act as the distinguishing feature for the accounts.

New Checkmark On Twitter
Esther Crawford in the charge of the company’s new Twitter Blue subscription confirmed through a tweet that the accounts eligible for the new ‘Official’ label will be given a separate grey checkmark. It will be an addition to the blue tick. The grey tick will be different from the regular blue tick.

This new label will only be given to “government accounts, commercial companies, business partners, major media outlets, publishers, and some public figures,” at least for now. Crawford even confirmed that this new label will not be for all previously verified accounts.
Although there is no information about how users have to apply for the new label. Moreover, the grey checkmark will not be available for everyone, including those who are willing to pay for the same.
Further, Crawford has even confirmed that the Twitter Blue checkmark will not need any sort of ID verification. Also, the company will continue to “experiment with ways to differentiate between account types.”
