Twitter New Page Gives Users the Chance to Opt Out of Verification

Twitter has had its fair share of controversies when it comes to its verification system. While some users have been clamoring for that coveted blue checkmark to boost their credibility, others have been stuck with it against their will. But now, it seems that there is finally a way out. Twitter’s new page gives users the chance to opt out of verification.

Twitter New Page Gives Users the Chance to Opt Out of Verification

According to Nima Owji, an App researcher, Twitter is planning to add a new page to its app that will allow users to cancel their subscription to the verification program, known as “Blue.” If you’re one of the many users who never wanted that checkmark in the first place, this could be music to your ears.

It’s been a long time coming, but Twitter recently removed checkmarks from all accounts that were verified through the old system unless they had already subscribed to Blue. However, Twitter and its owner Elon Musk decided to make exceptions for some accounts, namely those belonging to celebrities both living and deceased celebrities, or those with over a million followers.

While the verification system can be a great way to establish credibility and authenticity, it can also be a burden. With the ongoing #BlocktheBlue trend, verified accounts are vilified for their blue badge. Being verified can make you a target for trolls and other forms of harassment, and some users have even reported receiving death threats because of their checkmarks.

Even some people against the blue checkmark have received a free one because they fulfilled some criteria set by Twitter. The inability to remove it could hamper their sign of protest against the system and could snatch them from their freedom of expression.

So, if you’re one of the users who has been stuck with a checkmark against your wishes, keep an eye out for Twitter new page that gives users the chance to opt out of verification. It might just be your ticket to finally getting rid of it once and for all.
