Twitter‘s new owner Elon Musk has said the social media company is holding off the launch of a new system of issuing verified badges to users and could use different “colour checks” for authenticating organisations and individuals.

In the days following Musk’s $44 billion acquisition of Twitter, the billionaire entrepreneur announced that the Blue Tick verification badge, which authenticates a user or organisation on Twitter, will be available for a monthly fee of $8.

“Holding off the relaunch of Blue Verified until there is high confidence in stopping impersonation. Will probably use different colour check for organisations than individuals,” Musk tweeted on Monday.
