November 22, according to foreign media reports, the United States local time Monday, Musk said TwitterWill again delay the launch of Twitter's Blue V authentication service"Until the platform is able to address the issue of account impersonation."

In an all-hands meeting with Twitter employees this week, Musk said,The timing of Twitter Blue's launch is uncertain"We may or may not launch next week," he said. But no further action will be taken until we have prevented a repeat of the previous major impersonation incidents."

In addition, he told the conference that the new system could also use different color checks to distinguish between individuals and organizations, but he did not elaborate, saying only that "it is still something we are considering."

Prior to Musk's announcement,The social media platform has suspended the relaunch of Twitter Blue. The news that it would return on November 29 was also overturned.

As previously reported, Twitter launched its Twitter Blue service in early November, a feature that allows users to pay for a blue check mark, previously available only to verified users. However, in the early days of its launch, the service led to a flood of pranksters creating well-known and imposter accounts on Twitter, many of which were used to impersonate well-known brands, politicians and celebrities and send all sorts of false information. What's more, it has caused the share prices of some companies to plunge, causing chaos.
