Elon Musk, the owner of Twitter, announced the appearance on the social network of ticks of a new color – gray and gold.
Business accounts will receive a gold checkmark, government organizations will receive a gray checkmark, and individuals will receive a blue checkmark. Moreover, there will be no differences between celebrities and ordinary users: Musk believes that “the boundaries of a person’s popularity are too subjective.”
In addition, some accounts will receive an additional badge indicating their affiliation with an organization.
The new verification system will work on December 2. Identity verification will be done manually by Twitter employees.
