By offering a second verification symbol, Twitter appeared to have fixed the blue stamps mess. However, after a few hours, Elon Musk announced that he had “killed” the novelty. The confusion seemed to have stopped there, but it didn’t take long for the second seal to return. Apparently, he appears in only a few countries, but not all profiles have recovered him.
One of the most recent changes to Twitter is the clutter caused by verification symbols. It is worth remembering that before, the process to have the blue seal was time-consuming and bureaucratic, but now it is enough to pay the monthly fee of US$ 8. However, as expected, many users decided to mess with such freedom, which irritated Elon Musk . Thus, a new gray seal emerged. That is, the verified of the verified.
However, Tesla’s CEO “killed” the “official” badge shortly after adding it to the network. A pure form of “if you stick, stick”.
Oh! But of course nothing can be simple on Twitter these days.
About 48 hours after the death of the “official” icon, he simply returned on some profiles like Coca-Cola and Twitter. Even pages like wired it’s the mashable got the badge back.
However, of course, there is a plot twist to all of this: the gray seal is only appearing in a few countries. Depending on the location of the user’s IP address, the symbol is not visible, which makes things even more confusing.
All of this leaves people scratching their heads, as it looks like Elon Musk is simply throwing ideas around to see the reactions. This is most evident when the billionaire makes posts like this:
Changes shouldn’t stop anytime soon.
The journey of transformations that the bird’s social network is going through is not over yet. There are so many novelties in a short space of time, that the technoblog needed compile as much as possible in one place🇧🇷
The new owner seems to want to send as much as he can while trying to recoup his $44 billion investment. This is one of the reasons for offering the blue seal to anyone who wants to pay its fee.
However, Musk has complained about the stampede of advertisers in recent weeks, blaming an open letter from activists🇧🇷
In addition, the executive plans to do away with the previous form of the verification badge. He believes that a lot of corruption has occurred in this model, so he intends to remove this version in the coming months.
There’s no way to know what else will happen to the bird’s social network. It is possible that the entrepreneur gets bored and tries to sell the platform to recover a part of his investment, for example. We can also look forward to further changes and, who knows, a third verification seal.
I would call it “Super Ultra Turbo Official 3”.
