X, the company formerly known as Twitter, has announced that its subscription service, Twitter Blue, will now allow users to hide their blue check mark. The blue checkmark is a symbol of verification on Twitter, and it indicates that a user has been authenticated by the platform. However, some users have expressed concerns that the blue check mark can make them a target for harassment or abuse.
With the new feature, users will be able to choose whether or not they want to show their blue checkmark on their profile and in their tweets. This means that users who are concerned about their safety or privacy can now hide their blue checkmark without losing access to the other features of Twitter Blue.
The ability to hide the blue check mark is just one of the new features that X is rolling out for Twitter Blue. The company is also adding a new way to preview tweets before they are sent, as well as a way to customize the app’s color scheme.
Twitter Blue is a monthly subscription service that costs $3.99 per month. It offers a number of features that are not available to free users, such as the ability to undo tweets, read articles without ads, and pin tweets to the top of your profile.
The ability to hide the blue check mark is a welcome addition to Twitter Blue. It gives users more control over their privacy and safety, and it could help to reduce the amount of harassment and abuse that users face on the platform.
Here are some of the benefits of hiding your blue checkmark:
- You may be less likely to be targeted by harassment or abuse.
- You may be able to blend in more on Twitter and avoid being treated differently because of your verified status.
- You may feel more comfortable sharing your opinions and thoughts on Twitter without fear of being attacked.
Here are some of the drawbacks of hiding your blue checkmark:
- You may not be able to access certain features on Twitter that are only available to verified users.
- You may not be able to get the same level of attention from other users.
- You may be less likely to be seen as an authority on a particular topic.
Ultimately, the decision of whether or not to hide your blue checkmark is up to you. However, if you are concerned about your safety or privacy, then hiding your blue check mark may be a good option for you.
