Elon Musk said Saturday that Twitter Blue, which allows users to pay for a subscription that gives them a verified blue check mark, will “probably” return soon after it was taken down amid chaos from accounts impersonating public figures.


Musk, who serves as CEO, said in a response to another user on Twitter that the service would return by the end of this week.

  • The subscription has been part of a slew of changes Musk is making to the social media platform after his purchase of the company went through last month.
  • He soon after announced plans to charge users $7.99 per month for Twitter verification, but the paid check mark did not require users to verify their identities.
