Twitter will give priority to verified accounts: Musk


Twitter CEO Elon Musk said on Tuesday that verified accounts on the microblogging site will now be given priority.

“Priority is now given to verified accounts,” he tweeted.

This development may bring special attention to those whose accounts have been verified.

For example, people visiting Twitter are more likely to see your posts if your account is verified.

Last week, Musk removed all legacy verified accounts with blue check marks.

American actor Charlie Sheen publicly begged Musk to return his blue Twitter check mark.

Sheen, like thousands of others, lost his official verification badge following a site-wide purge of legacy verified accounts.

He was among those who refused to pony up for Twitter Blue – Musk’s $8-dollars-a-month subscription service.

However, Sheen’s blue check was soon reinstated.

Amitabh Kant, former CEO of NITI Aayog, also lost the blue tick on Twitter.

Earlier it was said that Twitter will not remove verified status from government accounts and accounts run by government officials.

Kant’s blue tick has not yet been restored.

Furthermore, Twitter’s ongoing blue tick saga later took another turn, as several influential and well-known users had their blue checks reinstated by Musk despite not having subscribed to the service.

Many influential and famous Twitter users around the world have reinstated their blue verification badges next to their usernames.
