People Who Subscribe To Twitter Blue Can Hide Their Checkmarks…. Out Of Embarrassment Perhaps?

This is a sure sign that having a blue checkmark on Twitter isn’t in the interest of people who are dumb enough decide to pay Elon Musk $8 a month for Twitter Blue. According to The Verge, Twitter Blue subscribers can now hide their checkmarks:

Twitter Blue, which Elon Musk is currently rebranding to X Blue, now includes the option to hide the notorious blue checkmark. Twitter Blue subscribers recently started noticing the “hide your blue checkmark” option on the web and in mobile apps, offering the ability to hide that they’re paying for Twitter and avoid memes about how “this mf paid for twitter.”

“The checkmark will be hidden on your profile and posts,” notes a Twitter support article. “The checkmark may still appear in some places and some features could still reveal you have an active subscription. Some features may not be available while your checkmark is hidden.”

The only reason why this is a thing is that clearly the checkmark has no value on Twitter. That’s because Elon destroyed any value it had. And it’s likely become a source of embarrassment for those who have one because they are dumb enough decided to pay for Twitter. The fact that Elon has to come up with something like this to keep whatever people who are dumb enough decided to pay him $8 a month from cancelling their subscriptions illustrates how much he’s hurt Twitter.
