Today the Twitter platform is face down, that is due to the changes that the new owner of the company is implementing, Elon Musk, who incorporates new rules as the hours pass. And if you are a user who has the account verified, you have surely noticed that the official label in your profile has currently disappeared.
The Director of Product Management on the page, Esther Crawford, mentioned that the accounts with the official pseudonym had to differentiate those who obtained the blue popcorn by identity and not for the payment towards the company. Well, remember that the law of providing money was implemented, specifically $8 to be able to be verified.
The label was only for government accounts, commercial companies, commercial partners, important media, editors and some public figures. So now the impersonation of identity could be easier for hackers, at least it is what the current Twitter owner is implying the users of the platform.
This what the platform employee mentioned:
Not all accounts previously verified will obtain the official label and the label is not available for purchase. The accounts that will receive it include government accounts, commercial companies, commercial partners, the main media, editors and some public figures.
Even with all this, it seems that the page threw back. They have already removed the label, although they could return after starting with the payment plan to be verified users.
