TIME.CO, Jakarta – Under Elon Musk, the X logo application continues to make various progress, most recently, Twitter officially released the Twitter Blue feature in Indonesia on February 9, 2023.
Previously, Twitter Blue was released in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. This paid feature allows users to get a variety of exclusive logins that cannot be used on regular Twitter.
Compiled from various sources, here are the differences between Blue Twitter and regular Twitter:
1. Edit tweets
This feature may have been pretty much expected by the Twitter audience. Quite a few of the users who want to edit the uploaded Tweet but are constrained by limited features. The Edit Tweet feature gives users 30 minutes to edit the original Tweet again.
2nd NFT photographic profile
Through the Twitter Blue feature, users can show their NFT in the profile picture on their account. By setting up an NFT profile picture, users can associate their accounts with linked public crypto wallet addresses.
Remove the blue check
Elon Musk says Twitter will finally remove the old blue checkmark on April 20, 2023. This is the “end date” cutoff date, he wrote in a tweet on April 12, 2023.
If the move is no joke and is successfully implemented, Twitter will have verification flags only for paid users and businesses, as well as government agencies and officials
The company initially announced that the old checkmark would be removed on April 1, 2023. What happened? That date has passed and no changes have occurred. Reflecting on this incident, the mention of the deadline this time raises doubts.
Before releasing a statement on Twitter, Musk agreed to give an interview to BBC via a Twitter Spaces session. When asked how removing the verify flag would impact the spread of disinformation, Musk said, “I think the media are more drivers of disinformation than the media would like to admit.”
Earlier this month, in a now-deleted tweet, Musk indicated the company would give a few weeks leeway for old accounts to be verified.
Last month, Musk also said that Twitter would stop recommending unverified accounts on its “For You” algorithmic timeline starting April 15, 2023.
The company recently changed the label that appears when someone taps the verification alert to “This account is verified because it’s a Twitter Blue subscription or it’s an old verified account.” This makes it difficult for people to distinguish between Twitter Blue customers and verified previous accounts.
