Twitter: How do the new blue, gold, and gray badges work?

Twitter accounts that previously received the blue tick may lose it in the coming months.

It's a done deal! Twitter is taking advantage of the relaunch of its new Twitter Blue paid subscription, which offers the well-known blue verification tick, to introduce new badges and designations for organizations and governments.

The new Twitter badges: What do they mean?

Twitter describes the operation of its new badge system, which makes it simpler to distinguish between various sorts of accounts:

Red Badge:

The fact that accounts that are subscribed to Twitter Blue also get it means that these accounts are still confirmed according to the prior verification standards (active, well-known, and real).

Gold Badge:

These are businesses, or more accurately, Twitter Blue for Business official business accounts. It takes the place of the prior designation of "official."

Blue Badge:

These are multilateral and governmental accounts. Twitter has stated that the deployment of this badge is imminent.

In order to better inform users, the platform also uses labels that appear next to some Twitter accounts' names, such as those for the government, affiliated media, political candidates, automated accounts, professional categories, etc.

Elon Musk wants to do rid of the blue checkmark on accounts that don't follow Twitter Blue.

Elon Musk stated that he intended to remove the blue tick, which is bad news for people who have previously received one: "In a few months, we will remove all the old blue ticks. They were delivered in a corrupt and ridiculous manner.

Many accounts began seeing a notice when they clicked on their blue check mark, as the tweet below illustrates: "This account has been verified for a time. He might not be as well recognized now.

Since Elon Musk took control of the social media site, it has undergone major changes as the billionaire tried to "revolutionize" it. For example, there have been mass layoffs and the restoration of suspended accounts like Donald Trump's. As a result of blue tick-related account takeovers, the platform suspended Twitter Blue in November and is now relaunching it. Recall that only the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom provide Twitter Blue; however, Twitter aims to soon make it available in other nations as well.
