Who’s verified? Who’s not? It’s Twitter, who knows?
Did a Twitter Account get a blue checkmark for paying for Twitter Blue, or is it a legacy-verified account? It’s almost impossible to know right now.
Why do we care? Twitter’s designation of “notable” accounts was supposed disappear April 1. While some have lost their designation (e.g. The New York Times lost it), many others have not. It looks like.
On all blue checkmarks, Twitter now says: “This account is verified because it’s subscribed to Twitter Blue or is a legacy verified account.”Before April 2, Twitter showed a different message: “This account is verified because it’s subscribed to Twitter Blue.”
The addition of “or is a legacy verified account” has made it impossible to tell who paid for their checkmark and who didn’t. Twitter hopes that this will increase sign-ups to Twitter Blue.

Many search marketers have said they won’t pay for Twitter Blue, so they are voluntarily giving up the blue checkmark. Such as Google’s Ads Liaison, Ginny Marvin.
“Twitter has been an integral aspect of my professional life for more than a decade,” Marvin tweeted. “I don’t need a blue check mark for that to continue.”
