New Twitter owner Elon Musk halted the release of a new code for verified accounts of celebrity users after just a few hours.
Few people today noticed the gray mark with the word “administrator” appearing and then disappearing in their profiles. “Kill him,” Musk responded to well-known tech blogger Marquis Brownlee on Twitter.
“I will do stupid things”
Whether musk meant the Brownley sign, the symbol as a whole, or just a precursor to it, was ultimately not clear. But Musk’s description of the subscription check mark as a “big balancer” suggests that the “official” mark may already be a thing of the past.
He also wrote: “Please note that Twitter is going to be doing a lot of stupid things in the coming months.” “We’ll keep what works” – and change everything else again.
Various forms of verification
It appears that Twitter wanted to adjust the reorganization of its verified accounts after the Musk acquisition. There should be two different types of verification tags – one for subscribers and one for already verified accounts like celebrities and companies.
A week ago, Musk only promised previously verified users an additional subscription label.
