Twitter Blue Tick: Twitter’s verified blue ticks were deleted from all accounts on Thursday.
Individual Twitter users who have verified blue checkmarks are those who pay for Twitter Blue, which costs USD 8 per month via the web and USD 11 per month via in-app payment on iOS and Android.

Several Bollywood celebrities, including Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Alia Bhatt, and politicians such as CM Yogi Adityanath, Rahul Gandhi, and Priyanka Gandhi, as well as cricketers Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, have lost their verified blue ticks from their Twitter accounts as a result of the recent development.

Bollywood celebrities such as Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Deepika Padukone, Amitabh Bachchan, Alia Bhatt, and others have lost their Twitter blue ticks. Ratan Tata and Anand Mahindra, both industrialists, have had their Twitter accounts deactivated, as have several politicians, including Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Rahul Gandhi, and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.

 

With a few exceptions, the blue tick mark appears next to the names of Twitter users who pay a $8 monthly cost for Twitter Blue subscription. Musk has said that he will personally pay for some celebrities’ Twitter Blue subscriptions in order for them to keep their blue checks.

Elon Musk is paying for Canadian actor William Shatner’s, NBA star LeBron James’, and author Stephen King’s Twitter Blue subscriptions – all of whom notoriously disagreed with the Tesla entrepreneur over his intentions to charge for verification.

 

The blue tick mark system was first implemented on Twitter in 2009 to assist users in determining whether celebrities, politicians, firms and brands, news organisations, and other accounts “of public interest” were authentic and not imposters or parody accounts. Previously, the company did not charge for verification.

How to Get Verified for Twitter Blue Tick?

  1. Check that your profile meets Twitter’s activity requirements.
  2. Go to your account settings and click “request verification” to begin the verification process.

  5. Show proof that you chose the correct category (e.g., your official website, articles about you, etc.).
  6. Provide an official email address, website, or government-issued ID to prove your identity.
  7. Click “submit” and wait for Twitter to respond.
