Twitter removed its legacy blue tick checkmarks from all accounts a few days ago. Latest reports suggest that the microblogging platform has started to restore the blue tick. Several users with at least one million Twitter followers have discovered that their blue ticks are back, although they have not paid for the service.

The microblogging platform recently announced labels for tweets that potentially violate the company’s hateful conduct policy.
