Twitter is delaying the rollout of verification stamps for subscribers to its new $8-a-month service until after Tuesday’s midterm elections, the newspaper reported. New York Times this Sunday (6).
Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The U.S. midterm elections on Tuesday will decide whether President Joe Biden’s Republicans or Democrats will control Congress.
Changes to Twitter’s verification process came a week after Elon Musk took over the social media company in a $44 billion deal. On Saturday, the social network updated its app on Apple’s App Store to start charging $8 for the blue badge that indicates a verified profile.
Twitter recently laid off 50% of its employees, including employees on the trust and security team, the company’s head of security and integrity Yoel Roth said in a post earlier this week.
