Twitter’s Return of Blue Check Marks Faces Criticism from Some Users

Elon Musk has announced that users with more than 2,500 paying followers will receive free Premium access on X. Those with more than 5,000 such followers will be given free Premium Plus, a more expensive tier that eliminates ads, among other benefits. However, not all users are thrilled with their new special status and are making it clear they did not pay for it. The blue check mark, which was once a sought-after status symbol awarded to verified high-profile users such as journalists, celebrities, politicians and official agencies has now become a badge anyone can purchase under Musk’s leadership.

The return of the free blue check prompted a flurry of jokes on the platform. Accounts that received the badge showed that it was not solely given to accounts affiliated with notable figures. Some users defended themselves on Twitter, stating that they did not pay for the badge. The platform is popular among journalists, although some do not appear enthusiastic about their new status. Other users expressed relief at not having received the badge yet. Some users are excited about their new badge while others just want it removed.
