You will be able to get a blue tick on Twitter by paying only
The latest New York Times report reveals that as per a leaked internal document, Twitter Blue and Twitter Verification will merge, and users, will no longer need to verify their identity to get blue ticks for their Twitter accounts. This means that users will be able to get blue ticks without any document or verification only by paying money.
