After Elon Musk took Twitter, the waters do not calm down. After purchasing the popular social media platform, Elon Musk announced that the blue tick feature would be paid. Today, with the statement made by a Twitter manager, the ‘Official’ tag was introduced in addition to the blue tick feature.
Twitter ‘Official’ tag finished before it started
Before the news of the “Official” label cooled down, another move came from Elon Musk. The businessman, who has been on the agenda many times recently, announced that the ‘Official’ tag feature was removed with his statement.
Elon Musk has managed to become the agenda again by canceling the decision announced during the day. Tesla, SpaceX and Twitter CEO used the following statements in a statement:
Please note that Twitter will be doing a lot of stupid things in the coming months… We will keep what works and replace what doesn’t. We do not know that Elon Musk caused this sudden change of decision. However, it is worth remembering that there is no account with the ‘Official’ tag on Twitter. We’ll have to wait and see how users will distinguish between blue tick holders and genuinely approved accounts.
As it is known, Esther Crawford, Twitter’s product management director, announced that the “Official” tag feature would come to the social media platform with her statement. In the statement, it was stated that the company will offer this new verification feature for certain accounts.
Crawford noted that the new endorsement statement would only be granted to “government agencies, corporations, major media outlets, broadcasters, and certain public figures.” Emphasizing that the “Official” label cannot be purchased, Crawford also underlined that not everyone can reach this approval.
