Twitter has made it possible to identify whether an account is official or fake with a blue checkmark 'verified badge' displayed next to the account name. However, since Mr. Mask acquired Twitter, there have been rumors of the development of a new Twitter Blue that will allow anyone to acquire an authenticated badge by paying money as a way to improve profitability, and in fact on November 10 has announced Twitter Blue where anyone can get an authenticated badge for 1200 yen per month.

However, since anyone can purchase an authenticated badge for 1200 yen per month, a large number of spoofed accounts with authenticated badges have occurred on Twitter. Many of the tweets by these impersonation accounts were political, so it was reported that major advertising agencies recommended customers to ``stop advertising on Twitter''.

After that, Twitter stopped distributing authenticated badges by suspending sales of Twitter Blue. However, Mr. Mask announced at around 8:00 on November 16, 2022 that the new Twitter Blue, which distributes authenticated badges, will be on sale again from November 29th.
