X Blue subscribers can hide their checkmarks


One of the things Elon Musk changed when he took over Twitter (now known as X) was to introduce paid verifications. This was baked into Twitter Blue’s subscription where subscribers would now get a checkmark next to their username, a feature that was previously only available to public figures and organizations as a means to verify who they say they are.

Now it appears that in an update to the Help Center page, X has revealed that one of the changes they’ll be introducing is the ability for users to hide the checkmark next to their usernames. This means that if they don’t want to show that they are an X Blue subscriber, they can hide the checkmark.

Some of you might be thinking it’s weird that people would want to hide it since it’s a feature they’re paying for, but keep in mind that in addition to the checkmark, X Blue comes with a host of other features like the ability to edit their posts, prioritize rankings in conversations and search, the ability to make longer posts, text formatting, and more.

We imagine that not everyone necessarily subscribes to X Blue just for the checkmark, so for those who don’t want to display it, they can hide it. That being said, the company does mention that in certain situations and places, the checkmark may still appear, but for the most part it shouldn’t so that’s something to keep in mind.
