Accessing this Blue option means that you can make changes to tweets such as editing those that have already been published, uploading high-resolution videos, changing the username and using a reading mode.

What color will the account verifications be?

The blue check will be for celebrities and people who pay Twitter Blue. But those that belong to an organization will also have “a small secondary logo” that identifies them.

For organizations, the gray verification will be maintained, which was launched a few weeks ago, and is delivered to accounts belonging to governments, politicians, presidents and state entities in general. Finally, gold verification will be focused on brands.
