Twitter is reportedly delaying the distribution of verification check marks to subscribers in order to avoid any potential impact from Tuesday’s midterm elections.
On Monday, the Elon Musk-owned social media company planned to launch a revamped version of its subscription service, Twitter Blue. According to an app update note, the company began testing the new features on Saturday. Twitter did not respond immediately to a request for comment. The reported decision to postpone the rollout of verification badges comes just days before the November 8 midterm elections in the United States.
