Twitter will not re-enable the ability to purchase a verification tick with subscription payments for another two weeks, on November 29th. The feature was quickly suspended after a wave of fake accounts from brands and celebrities. According to the new model, anyone who pays eight dollars a month gets the tick. There is no identity check. The tick looks the same in both cases. Whether you are dealing with an earlier, actually verified account or with a new, purchased tick only becomes clear from the text after clicking on the symbol.
