Elon Musk said in a tweet Friday that Twitter would launch its delayed “Verified” service next week with different coloured checks depending on the form of account.

The Twitter CEO said there could be a “gold check” for firms, a gray coloured one for presidency accounts and the prevailing blue one for people, whether or not they are celebrities or not.

All verified accounts will likely be “manually authenticated” before the check is activated, Musk said.

The billionaire called the move “Painful, but vital”

Musk’s comments come after he was forced to pause the $8 per thirty days Twitter Blue service, which allowed anyone to pay the subscription for the blue verification tick, after users abused the system by impersonating brands and famous people.

The CEO said Monday that Twitter would delay the relaunch of its $8 per thirty days Blue Verified service. On the time, Musk said Twitter will “probably use [a] different color check for organizations than individuals.”

Now he has given details on what that would seem like.

Musk had earlier said he planned to relaunch Twitter Blue on Nov. 29. Musk’s latest timeline puts the relaunch on Dec. 2.

The subscription service is Musk’s attempt to seek out a latest revenue stream at Twitter as a part of the billionaire’s controversial shakeup on the social media firm.

Musk has fired 1000’s of employees at Twitter and asked the remaining staff to commit to working “long hours at high intensity” or leave.
