Elon Musk announced that Twitter's new multicoloured verification will go live next week


Following the failure of the first launch of Twitter's "power to the people" verification system, Elon Musk announced that the social network will trial a new multicoloured verification system next week.


According to Twitter's owner, companies will receive a gold checkmark, government officials will receive a grey checkmark — likely similar to the "official" checkmark it is currently testing with some prominent accounts — and the blue checkmark will be dedicated to individuals who are not celebrities. That means the blue check mark will be used with legacy verified accounts as well as those who purchase Twitter's new $8 per month paid plan. Musk also stated that the company intends to manually authenticate all verifications before implementing the new verification system. It's unclear what he means, given that Twitter Blue subscribers will receive a blue checkmark.
