Twitter users may be able to hide blue ticks to avoid trolling


After making its paid Twitter Blue with Verification service available to all, the Elon Musk-run company is now working on a feature that allows users to hide blue checkmarks as customers criticize and troll. have to face. The app’s researcher, Alessandro Paluzzi, posted on Twitter that the micro-blogging platform is working on a control panel for verification settings.

It will have an option, “Show or hide your blue checkmark on your profile.” “Twitter continues to work on the ability to control everything related to account verification and identity by adding the option to show or hide your blue checkmark on your profile,” Palazzi said.

Twitter was yet to comment on this upcoming feature.

According to reports, this feature can help if a Twitter Blue user’s tweet goes viral and is flooded with hate comments. It may also help people who don’t want to advertise that they paid for the blue check mark. However, it’s hard to speculate whether hiding the blue checkmark will actually protect users as people can still search tweets from verified users.

Musk announced on Friday that Twitter would remove all legacy blue verified check marks for both individual users and organizations starting April 1. People can sign up for Twitter Blue to keep the blue checkmark on Twitter.

This essentially means that accounts that were verified before Musk took over and revamped the Twitter Blue subscription program will lose their blue ticks as Twitter bosses push for more Blue subscribers. . Twitter Blue will cost Rs 9,400 per year (or Rs 900 per month) in India for individual users.

Twitter Blue is now available globally and users can get Blue Verified for $7 per month if they sign up via a web browser. In India, signing up through a web browser will cost you Rs 650 per month.
