Twitter announces new 'official' label as Musk says platform hit all-time high of active users
Elon Musk claimed that Twitter hit an all-time high of active users on Thursday, as the platform introduced an "official" label to profiles amid its rollout of Twitter Blue.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk said Twitter hit an all-time high of active users on Thursday, shortly after the platform announced they were using an "official" label as an added layer of authenticity to accounts.
"Hit all-time high of active users today," Musk tweeted, echoing his past remarks about the company's success under his ownership. An internal document recently claimed that daily active user growth crossed 250 million in the first week of Musk's leadership.
"Twitter user numbers have increased significantly around the world since the deal was announced," Musk wrote on Sunday. "And these are very early days. As Twitter becomes by far the most reliable source of truth, it will be indispensable."
With an increase in active users, there have been more concerns about Musk's new $7.99 subscription service that allows ordinary users to have blue check-marks next to their name. The blue check-mark feature was previously only given to celebrities and other official figures.
