Billionaire Elon Musk said on Tuesday that Twitter’s sought-after blue check subscription service will be relaunched on Nov. 29, a minor delay from his initial tentative timeline to bring back the service on the social media platform.

“Punting relaunch of Blue Verified to November 29th to make sure that it is rock solid,” Musk said in a tweet.

The coveted blue check mark was previously reserved for verified accounts of politicians, famous personalities, journalists and other public figures.

Last week, the Tesla (TSLA.O) chief had said Twitter Blue will probably “come back end of next week”. read more
