The new CEO of Twitter, Elon Musk, announced he will be launching a new update of Twitter’s paid verified system on Friday 2 December. 

Musk announced that Twitter Verified will now show the users verification using a colour scheme, rather than the traditional singular blue check.

The new system will show gold checks to represent companies, grey checks for governments and blue checks for individuals – regardless of whether they’re considered celebrities. 

He continued to add that the verified accounts will be manually authenticated before check activities and admitted the new system is “painful, but necessary.”

Before this new announcement, Elon Musk changed the way we’ve all known Twitter Verified to work and introduced a new system where any account can pay for a verified tick next to their name if they paid for a subscription of $8 USD a month. 

However, this service didn’t last long and Musk temporarily halted the service when users who paid to be verified, began changing their account names to impersonate companies and famous individuals.
