Elon Musk to relaunch Blue check subscription on November 29th

Billionaire Elon Musk announced on Tuesday that the much-desired blue check subscription service on Twitter will be relaunched on November 29, a slight change from his initial tentative timetable.

Musk tweeted, “Punting relaunch of Blue Verified to November 29th to ensure that it is rock solid.

There is no doubt that the initial Blue launch wasn’t entirely successful.

Twitter’s new Blue membership programme went live for iOS users earlier this month. However, a flurry of fake verified accounts started to appear on the network a few days later, and Blue signups were subsequently suspended.

According to Musk, you will lose the checkmark if you change your “verified name” on the relaunched Blue until Twitter verifies your new name.

Nintendo is among the fraudulent brand accounts that have been deleted.

Following Musk’s takeover, a number of businesses, including General Motors and United Airlines, stopped or scaled back their online advertising.

Last week, in response, the billionaire stated that he wanted to make Twitter a source of reality and get rid of fake accounts.

Previously, the coveted blue check mark was reserved for verified accounts of politicians, celebrities, journalists, and other public figures. However, a subscription option, open to anyone willing to pay, was launched earlier this week to help Twitter increase revenue as Musk battles to retain advertisers.
