In a response to Al-Mamlaka TV, the ministry confirmed that Twitter had removed verification badges from everyone, whether they were an individual or institution if they had not paid for the new blue checkmark feature.

From blue to greyThe ministry continued to explain that work is currently underway to contact the social media site and regain its verification mark, this time in grey, which stands for governmental accounts, and is a non-paid feature.

The new blue checkmark that was once previously used to verify the authenticity and fame of an account now means that the user is a member of “Twitter Blue” with a paid fee of $8 per month, and a phone verification, as long as they meet the requirements.

With the new rollouts on Twitter, and in a new strategy developed by CEO Elon Musk to verify accounts and generate additional revenue, accounts that had not paid lost their blue checkmark.

According to Travis Brown, a Berlin-based developer of software for tracking social media, highlighted that only 5 percent of the 407,000 affected accounts subscribed to the new “Twitter Blue” feature.
