No verification badge before 90 days, verified name change prospects

Ever since the takeover by billionaire Elon Musk, Twitter is changing almost every day. Several changes are taking place, which, to be honest, are making the platform worse and a gateway for fraudsters and scammers. Also Read - Elon Musk says don't want to be CEO of Twitter or Tesla

One such example is the infamous Twitter Blue subscription, which was available for everyone to subscribe to and to get the Blue tick. This allowed users to create new verified troll accounts that impersonated someone, which seemed way too real.

Now, however, Twitter has updated the terms of Twitter Blue, which may affect these troll accounts, helping Twitter do away with fraudsters.

Twitter on its FAQ page has confirmed that new users will now have to wait for 90 days before they are able to subscribe to Twitter Blue.

“Newly created Twitter accounts will not be able to subscribe to Twitter Blue for 90 days. We may also impose waiting periods for new accounts in the future in our discretion without notice.”

In addition to this, Musk revealed on Twitter that if the verified account name is changed, the Blue tick will be lost until it is confirmed by Twitter again. The name changes must honor the Terms of service, however.

“With new release, changing your verified name will cause loss of checkmark until name is confirmed by Twitter to meet Terms of Service,” said Musk on Twitter.

In other news, Twitter appears to be closely monitoring the already verified accounts as the verification badge for some accounts was recently removed.
