Twitter brought back this ‘checkmark’ supporting its bid to stop impersonation.
You may see a gray tick with an ‘Official’ tag for government agencies, media groups, a few political people, and more.
This was relaunched to avoid the risk of paid users imposing as someone else, as there is no review associated with Twitter Blue.
Personal accounts have no such feature yet. However, Twitter guidelines state a user imposing as someone else should mention this in their account name or bio or face suspension.
Though we are struggling for this differentiation, all will have to go ‘Blue’ and pay for the tick marks soon.
Twitter may come with yet another indicator to distinguish the legacy tick mark owners, but that’s to be seen. In the meantime, you can use the listed ways to tell one from another.
