Elon Musk is entirely focused on rebranding Twitter and has been frequently in the headlines everywhere and yet again this time for introducing a new feature allowing paid users to sustain anonymity by hiding their blue tick.

It was recently several paid users started to notice a new feature "hide your blue checkmark" on their devices that allowed them to hide that they have a paid Twitter and save themselves from the memes evolving.

There were several critics spreading memes, jokes, and even sarcastic criticism over paid users for spending $8 for a blue checkmark and some not-so-required features, but that now remains a thing of the past since now you can hide you are paying.

Indeed it is such a much-need feature that would help save several lives that were bullied online for paying $8 for Twitter Blue. However, Twitter was better before as ever since the rolling out of paid checkmarks started, everything simply became a mess.

Before Twitter rolled a verification system for credibility based on users' impact on society and their influence but since now anyone could buy a checkmark be it a notable person or a random 18-year-old it became chaos full of fake unrequired checkmarks.

Since even a random person holds a checkmark account, it became a topic to talk about or brag about users paying dollars for a social media checkmark giving no meaning for being a million+ follower account.

However, from now on if you subscribe to Twitter Blue, the platform now tags another blue checkmark that indicates "verified since" the date you subscribed while the legacy verified accounts now contain the original date of verification which is before the subscription's existence.

Currently, Twitter is facing an "It's all complicated" situation where the audience is confused and also on edge since you just don't know what feature might they launch all of a sudden without any notice.
