Following Elon Musk’s takeover, Twitter made considerable adjustments. Among these are the numerous colored badges that are now finally available for authentication. In addition to Twitter Blue verification, a label known as the “gray badge” that is “official” is now available. Another option is the freshly released golden badge.
After getting the golden badge on Twitter, food delivery business Swiggy updated their Twitter bio to add a reference to Munna Bhai M.B.B.S.
Swiggy used Twitter to share a screenshot of their bio with the golden tick. “Carrom ramvanu, juice pivanu, majjani life,” read the bio. The remark is actually part of a famous cult comedy film called Munna Bhai M.B.B.S (2003) the line is spoken by Rustom’s father while playing carrom and drinking juice.
The admin also twitted “Our gold tick is laddoo”
Elon Musk tweeted, “Gold check for companies, gray check for government, blue check for individuals (famous or not), and all verified accounts will be manually authenticated before check activates.”
“All verified individual persons will have the same blue check,” Tesla CEO Elon Musk earlier wrote, “since the border of what defines “notable” is otherwise too subjective.”
According to Twitter, the gold check mark represents corporations, while the gray check mark represents government and multinational accounts. Previously, all official handles had blue checkmarks; however, some now have gold checkmarks.
Users who visit Twitter over the web must pay an $8 monthly subscription fee, while Apple users must pay an $11 monthly fee.
Twitter Blue was established in November, but it had to be halted as the platform became inundated with fraudulent accounts. A second launch was scheduled for November 29, but it was canceled.
