Twitter will start removing legacy blue checkmarks for individuals and organisations on its platform from April 1.
Those who want a blue tick on their profiles can purchase a Twitter Blue subscription for $8 per month. Along with the blue checkmark, users will also be able to see fewer ads, bookmark their folders, write long tweets, edit tweets and undo tweets.
In addition to the blue check, users can purchase other badges or checkmarks that denote their account type.
On April 1st, we will begin winding down our legacy verified program and removing legacy verified checkmarks. To keep your blue checkmark on Twitter, individuals can sign up for Twitter Blue here: https://t.co/gzpCcwOpLp
Organizations can sign up for https://t.co/RlN5BbuGA3…

Previously, a blue tick was given as a sign of verification and authenticity of an individual or other accounts. However, after the takeover of Elon Musk, anyone could get a blue tick which has been causing chaos on the platform.
