X Blue, Formerly Twitter Blue, Allows Subscribers To Hide Checkmarks

However, the company cautions that the checkmark may still appear in certain instances, and certain features may be unavailable while the checkmark is hidden.

Twitter Blue, previously known as “X Blue,” initially attracted users by offering the coveted blue checkmark to anyone willing to pay for the service.

However, subscribers have faced backlash in recent months for their $8 monthly or $84 annual payment. SurgeZirc UK has now observed that the company has updated its support page for X Blue, introducing a new feature for members: the ability to hide the verified checkmark on their accounts.

Within the account settings’ “Profile customization” section, subscribers will find a new option to “Hide your blue checkmark” that they can activate. This will remove the badge from their profiles and posts.

However, the company cautions that the checkmark may still appear in certain instances, and certain features may be unavailable while the checkmark is hidden.

Although Twitter has not specified which features will be affected, it has implemented several changes exclusively for paying users since Elon Musk’s involvement. These include increasing the posted limit to 25,000 characters and developing tools for publishing long-form content. The platform has also expanded the video limit to 3 hours.

However, these enhancements have made the social network less appealing to free users. In July, Twitter announced limitations on the number of direct messages non-paying users can send to combat spam.

Previously, it had also imposed a strict cap on the number of tweets a user can see per day due to excessive data scraping. Although the restriction was temporary, unverified accounts were initially limited to 600 posts daily.

App developer Alessandro Paluzzi first discovered the option to hide checkmarks in March. According to Paluzzi’s screenshots, the verification process will remain the same, requiring users to submit a government ID for identity authentication.

However, it will no longer be immediately apparent that someone is a paying X Blue user.
