Beginning December 2, Twitter’s verification system is changing, and the Blue check will be returning. Before, there was only Blue Checkmark, now it is divided into three as Gold, Gray, and Blue.
Twitter will provide a gold checkmark for companies, a grey check for government, and a blue checkmark for individuals (celebrity or not), Elon Musk confirmed this in a Tweet. Also, he added that all verified accounts will be manually authenticated before the check activates.
The fee for those who want to take advantage of Twitter Blue privileges and get Checkmark is $7.99 monthly. The Blue Checkmark was previously reserved and free for verified accounts of politicians, famous personalities, journalists, and other public figures.
