Elon Musk reactivates Donald Trump’s Twitter account as others flee platform
Texas Rep. Michael Cloud and The Washington Post columnist Marc Thiessen discuss Donald Trump’s Twitter being reinstated and the House GOP’s agenda on ‘The Evening Edit.’
Twitter chief Elon Musk said Friday that the social media platform would roll out an updated verified service next Friday.
In tweets early Friday, the SpaceX founder apologized for the delay and explained how verification would be updated.
"Gold check for companies, grey check for government, blue for individuals (celebrity or not) and all verified accounts will be manually authenticated before check activates," he said. "Painful, but necessary."
Responding to his tweet, social media influencer Crypto King asked, "So every individual verified as a public official or $8 payment will have the same check? Will they be customizable? Will there be a red check for those that commit fraud but verified #NYT?"
