Elon Musk said that the social network Twitter will initially roll out a new, multicolored verification system next week. This came after the first launch of the “power to people” verification system was spoiled on Twitter,

Twitter’s owner said that according to the scheme, businesses will get a gold checkmark, government officials will get a gray checkmark – perhaps similar to the “official” checkmark the platform is currently experimenting with some high-profile accounts – and individuals will be allocated a blue checkmark even if They were not celebrities.

According to Musk’s statement, this means that the blue check mark will be used with older verified accounts and people who purchase Twitter’s new $8 per month paid plan.

Musk also added that the company aims to manually certify all verifications before the new verification system goes live. It is not clear what he means by that as Twitter Blue subscribers will get a blue checkmark. Not only that, it’s clear that Twitter’s reduced workforce will be pressured to manually check every verification process to avoid any impersonation or spam.

Individuals can get a second small logo to indicate if they are part of a particular organization, Musk said. He also said that this organization must also verify that the individual represents them or works with them in some way. He added that the decision to apply a blue tick to all individual accounts was made because noticing someone is a subjective matter.

Musk paused Twitter Blue earlier this month, which was renewed, and said it will resume on November 29th. However, this week, the Tesla CEO put that plan on hold until “there is a high level of impersonation cases.”

Notably, this is the first time Musk has spoken about using multiple color check marks. It did not say or specify whether this new verification system would happen at the same time as the Twitter Blue restart. But it’s possible that this verification process will restart for verified accounts, businesses, and government officials — not paying subscribers — for now.

Twitter took another step in stopping spam and fake accounts when it finally re-launched Twitter Blue. Last week, the platform changed its terms whereby newly created accounts will have to wait 90 days from the date the account was created before you can purchase a Twitter Blue subscription.

The Twitter platform under Musk’s leadership first rolled out its new verification program on November 9, but Twitter promptly shut down the project after several accounts began impersonating brands, athletes, and celebrities. Now, Twitter is taking all possible measures to avoid this kind of chaos from happening again.

Musk also said earlier today that Twitter will offer all suspended accounts a “general amnesty” starting next week, based on the result of a survey he conducted a few days ago on the platform.
