Since Elon Musk has taken a step into Twitter, there are a lot of major changes occurring on the platform and the most common change that was noticed is an $8 subscription for verified ticks (blue tick) for verified users. 

In addition, a recent change has occurred on the platform which now enables accounts to classify their identity through various verified ticks which come with blue, gold, and silver. Some accounts which previously had blue ticks are now appearing with gold ticks.

Let’s see how these tick checkmarks differentiate from each other:

• Gold verified checks are linked to the accounts with official businesses & companies.

• Whereas blue checks are for individuals. Those who are individuals will appear with the blue check. 

Moreover, Twitter changes the blue tick to a gold tick for the company’s accounts.
