Twitter’s latest update, where it introduced an “official” label for select verified accounts, disappeared as abruptly as it appeared on Wednesday. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s official handle was one of the selected handles with the new label.
In an effort to clear up the obvious confusion this has created, Elon Musk, the social media giant’s Complaint Hotline Operator, said: “Keep in mind that Twitter will be doing a lot of stupid things in the coming months. We will keep what works and change what doesn’t.”
When American YouTuber Marques Brownlee shared a tweet confirming that the label was gone, Elon Musk said, “I just killed it…Blue finch will be the big level.”

Twitter announced Wednesday morning that it would introduce an “official” label for select verified accounts, including major media outlets and governments, when it launches its new $8 service with the blue verification mark.
“Not all previously verified accounts will be labeled ‘Official’ and the label will not be available for purchase. Accounts that will receive it include government accounts, commercial companies, business partners, major media outlets, publishers and some public figures,” Twitter said. stage products executive Esther Crawford had tweeted.
Twitter’s coveted blue badge is undergoing a major makeover, with billionaire Elon Musk sticking to his $8 fee despite heavy criticism.
