Twitter billionaire owner Elon Musk said on Sunday that Twitter will soon allow organizations to identify Twitter accounts associated with them as the new Twitter owner continues to find ways to limit fake accounts on the platform.
“Rolling out soon,” Musk said in a tweet on Sunday. “Twitter allows organizations to identify which other Twitter accounts are actually linked to them.”
He didn’t work out.
The social media platform interrupted its recently announced $8 blue check subscription service on Friday as fake accounts mushroomed, and new owner Elon Musk returned the “official” badge to some users of the social media platform.
Since the new rollout, fake accounts claiming to be big brands have surfaced with the blue check, including Musk’s Tesla and SpaceX, as well as Roblox, Nestle, and Lockheed Martin.
Musk said in a tweet yesterday that Twitter Blue will likely “come back at the end of next week.”
Twitter Inc’s new owner Elon Musk raised the possibility on Thursday that the social media platform could go bankrupt, the day the trust and security chief left the company.
Twitter has eliminated 4,400 of its 5,500 contract workers, with cuts expected to have a significant impact on content moderation and core infrastructure services, Casey Newton, a reporter for the technical publication Platformer, tweeted on Sunday.
Twitter did not immediately respond to Reuters’ request for comment.
