Musk says Twitter will let organizations identify their associated accounts

In a tweet on Sunday, Musk stated that “Rolling out soon.” Organizations will be able to determine whether other Twitter accounts are really connected to them thanks to Twitter.

The social media platform paused its recently announced $8 blue check subscription service on Friday as fake accounts mushroomed, and new owner Elon Musk brought back the “official” badge to some users of the social media platform.
