Twitter Blue subscription users may hide their paid check marks soon

by IANS |

New Delhi, March 25 (IANS) After making its paid Twitter Blue with verification service available to all, the Elon Musk-run company is now working on a feature that is likely to let users hide the blue checkmark.

App researcher Alessandro Paluzzi posted on Twitter that the micro-blogging platform is working on a control panel for verification settings.

It will have an option, saying "Show or hide your blue checkmark on your profile."

"Twitter keeps working on the ability to control everything related to account verification and identity by adding the option to show or hide your blue checkmark on your profile," Paluzzi said.

Twitter was yet to comment on this upcoming feature.

According to reports, the feature may help if a tweet from a Twitter Blue user goes viral and he or she gets bombarded with comments filled with hatred. It may also help those who don't want to advertise that they paid for Blue check-mark.

However, it is hard to predict if hiding Blue checkmark will actually protect users as people can still search for tweets from verified users.

Musk on Friday announced that Twitter will remove all legacy Blue verified check marks for both individual users and organisations from April 1. Twitter Blue in India will cost Rs 9,400 a year (or Rs 900 a month) for individual users.

Twitter Blue is now available globally and the users can get Blue Verified for $7 a month if they sign up via web browser.

"On April 1, we will begin winding down our legacy verified program and removing legacy verified check marks. To keep your blue checkmark on Twitter, individuals can sign up for Twitter Blue," said the company.
