TL;DR

  • Elon Musk is delaying the rollout of Twitter’s paid verification system until the end of the month.
  • He wants the service to be “rock solid.”
  • This comes after tons of fake verified accounts flooded Twitter, forcing Musk to halt the $8 Twitter Blue subscription.

Twitter’s paid verification goof-up is undoubtedly one for the history books. Impersonators created havoc on the social media platform after it rolled out the $8 Twitter Blue subscription service that doles out a blue check mark to anyone who pays. So much so that the stock prices of major companies like Eli Lilly and Lockheed Martin took a nosedive last week thanks to fake tweets from so-called “verified” Twitter accounts.

In light of the fiasco, Elon Musk is now delaying the rollout of the paid blue checkmark to November 29.

“Punting relaunch of Blue Verified to November 29th to make sure that it is rock solid,” Musk tweeted on Tuesday.

There’s no word on what will happen to the accounts of users who have already paid the $8 fee for verification. Musk has also not shared any plans as to how the service plans to deal with imposter accounts going forward.

In a follow-up tweet, Musk announced that all legacy blue check marks would be removed in a few months if account holders don’t pay up for the new Twitter Blue subscription.
