American entrepreneur and billionaire Elon Musk said that the resumption of the sale of Twitter Blue subscriptions has been postponed until November 29.
Earlier, the Washington Post, citing a letter sent to employees, reported that on November 10, Twitter decided to suspend the sale of subscriptions in order to solve the problem with accounts impersonating other persons. At the same time, the publication claimed that, despite the restriction on the sale of a subscription, Twitter Blue owners still have full access to its functions. Musk said on Nov. 13 that subscription sales could resume by the end of this week.
“Blue Verified restart delayed until November 29th to make sure (subscriptions) are reliable,” Musk tweeted.
The new owner of the platform emphasized that in the updated version of the subscription, changing the previously confirmed account name will result in the loss of the verification checkmark and it will be possible to return it only after the social network confirms that the new user name complies with the terms of the user agreement.
A paid subscription to Twitter Blue, among other things, allows users to receive a “blue tick” on the social network, which previously meant that the account was verified.
American company Twitter Inc. was founded in 2006. The main product of the company is a social network for exchanging short messages. At the end of October, the American entrepreneur Elon Musk became the new owner of the company, who bought Twitter for $44 billion.
