Musk relaunched the blue tick opt-in on Twitter on November 29
Billionaire Elon Musk said Twitter’s blue tick subscription service will be restarted on November 29, a slight delay from its original timeline for the service to resume on the social media platform.
“Delaying blue tick restart until November 29 to ensure it is very strong,” Musk wrote in a tweet on Twitter yesterday.
In the new version, changing the verified name will result in the loss of the blue tick “until the name has been verified by Twitter to meet its terms of service,” Musk said.
The blue tick was previously reserved for the verified accounts of politicians, celebrities, journalists, and other public figures.
But the subscription option, which is available to anyone willing to pay, was launched earlier this week to help Twitter grow revenue while Musk struggles to retain advertisers.
Last week, the Tesla boss said Twitter Blue will likely return “next weekend.”
On Friday, Twitter paused its recently announced $8 blue tick subscription service as fake accounts proliferated.
The change came a week after Musk acquired the social media company in a $44 billion deal.
