Twitter’s refreshed account verification programme will be launched next week. CEO Elon Musk said they will launch “Verified” next Friday. “Sorry for the delay, we’re tentatively launching Verified on Friday next week.” he tweeted.
Here’s a 5-point explainer on Twitter’s refreshed “Verified”
The verified badge will have different colours, depending on the category of the account.
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, Mr Musk said.
All verified individual humans will have the same blue check, as the boundary of what constitutes notable is otherwise too subjective, Mr Musk said.
Individuals can have a secondary tiny logo showing they belong to an organisation if verified as such by that organisation.
On the current multi-coloured verification system, Mr Musk called it “painful, but necessary”, adding a “longer explanation” on how the system would work would come out next week, according to a report by The Verge.
