Security researcher Chris Boyd discovered this sentence. He tweeted, ``I discovered that I needed to read the terms of service in case someone applied for an authenticated organization on Twitter ($1,000) and was denied.''

According to Twitter's terms of service, it seems that it is necessary to first pay $1,000 in advance to become a Twitter-certified organization to receive a gold check mark, and Mashable, an overseas media company, said, ``Prepayment to receive a gold check mark. It's more like a non-refundable application fee.'

I can't get my money back. What should I do? Elon Musk has stolen $1000 from my bank account.'

FeFe has succeeded in using a lawyer to refund $ 1000 to Twitter.

It's unclear when the Twitter Verified Organizations policy was updated, but the Help Center page detailing Twitter Verified Organizations as of March 24, 2023 has a sentence in question: did not do it.

In addition, as announced in advance from April 21, Twitter has ' deleted the blue check mark from authenticated accounts that are not subscribed to Twitter Blue '. This is a measure to get more users to join Twitter Blue, which is one of the latest money measures by Twitter.
