Elon Musk Vows To Rid Legacy Checkmarks Off Twitter Off On April 20

Elon Musk has promised that Twitter will finally remove the legacy blue checkmarks on April 20.

This is the “final date,” he said in a tweet.

Twitter will have verification marks only for paid users and businesses, and government entities and officials, should the plan go through.

Twitter had initially announced last month that legacy checkmarks will be removed on April 1.

Earlier this month, in a now-deleted tweet, Musk pointed out that the company was going to give “a few week’s grace” to legacy verified accounts.

Last month, Musk also said that Twitter will stop recommending non-verified accounts on its “For You” algorithmic timeline starting April 15.

Recently, the company changed the label shown when someone taps on the verification mark to “This account is verified because it’s subscribed to Twitter Blue or is a legacy verified account.”
