Twitter’s battle with legacy blue ticks is a story that has been making headlines for a while now. Elon Musk, Twitter’s CEO, announced last month that the legacy blue ticks on Twitter will be gone on April 1. The company did not remove the legacy ticks on its platform by April 1, despite the heated debate surrounding the topic. Twitter announced another date for the removal of legacy blue ticks from its platform.
Twitter announced today that they will be removing legacy checked checkmarks on Thursday, April 20,. Elon Musk intends to delete the last remnants of ‘lords and peasants system’ from Twitter on April 20th, ha ha.
It’s just that I won’t believe it until it happens. As far as I’m aware, the company initially said it would “begin”, removing checkmarks by April 1st. Musk, it appears, made sure this happened. Twitter removed The New York Times verified checkmark when the publication refused to pay the high fees for organization accounts.
Musk had already tweeted on April 11,, about this date. It feels more likely to happen now that Twitter Verified is tweeting about the date.
The blue checkmark badges may disappear gradually or all at once. Since removing badges is “largely a manual process,” The Washington Post I wouldn’t surprise if the process has some glitches. Twitter’s press team responded to a request for comment with the poop emoji. This is a recent trend.
If the change is implemented, then you will have to pay to get a blue checked checkmark. Twitter Blue has recently been updated to include less ads for subscribers. The fact that the idea of paying for Blue is now almost a meme, to the point that Twitter has even explored hiding your checkmark makes me doubt that Musk will be able to justify his $44 billion purchase .
