Stealth Mode Activated: Twitter Blue Users On Web Can Soon Keep Their Blue Checkmark Under Wraps!

In a notable escalation of experimentation, Twitter is currently intensifying trials of an innovative profile personalization option exclusively available to Twitter Blue members. This new feature enables users to discreetly mask the blue verification badge on their profile, a prominent characteristic associated with the Twitter Blue subscription plan.

The development of this feature has been in progress for several weeks, and recent indications suggest that testing is intensifying. Lucas, a highly engaged contributor on the platform, stumbled upon the proof of the novel function while navigating Twitter on the web. The evidence pointed to a new segment known as "Profile Customization." There, the users can make adjustments to their profiles by choosing to hide various elements, such as their likes, subscriptions, and the infamous blue checkmarks.

On Twitter, the blue checkmark has garnered both attention and jest, with some individuals humorously poking fun at Twitter Blue members who paid for the subscription just to acquire the hard-to-get blue checkmark. However, the new toggle, set to release in the near future, may change the dynamics. By permitting people to subscribe to Twitter Blue in an anonymous manner, it enables them to discreetly access the subscription's perks without drawing attention from others. The only exemption is when they utilize facilities like tweet editing or lengthy posts, which will still reveal their Twitter Blue status.

The blue checkmark has long been recognized as an exclusive symbol of Twitter Blue. Furthermore, it aligns with Twitter's Chief Technology Officer, Elon Musk, strategy to combat fraudulent activity and bots on the platform while establishing a long-term business model. Previously, the blue checkmark was reserved for notable individuals. But with the introduction of Twitter Blue's $8 monthly subscription plan, any subscriber can apply for verification.

Beyond the coveted blue checkmark, the Twitter Blue subscription offers additional advantages. Subscribers gain the opportunity to make changes in their tweets for up to 60 minutes after posting, enjoy higher prioritization in conversations and search results, and access in-app customization options for the navigation panel and icon, among other benefits.

As Twitter continues to fine-tune its features, the Profile Customization option is poised to become a noteworthy addition, providing users with more control over their public image and social presence. With the forthcoming rollout of this feature, Twitter aims to strike a balance between user privacy and enhanced functionality within its subscription service.
