Twitter users beware! Somewhere you are not getting Fake Account Verification Emails, know what is the matter here.
Twitter’s new CEO Elon Musk announced that the micro-blogging site will be changing its verification process.
With the announcement of Twitter’s new verification names, a number of cyber security threats have come to the fore. Let us know about them.
The Twitter account verification fee.
As we know Twitter is planning to charge for account verification. Under this users may have to pay money for their verified account.
Recently Musk has said that users will have to pay only $ 8 for account verification.
Getting phishing emails.
Let us know that some people are already getting phishing emails. The latest update has revealed that this option of account verification has now become a cybersecurity issue.
Recently, TechCrunch editor Jack Whitaker shared a screenshot of a fake account verification mail on his Twitter.
Jack Whitaker wrote in a tweet that Twitter’s ongoing Verification Kaios is now a cyber security issue.
Some people seem to be getting crude phishing emails tricking people into changing their Twitter credentials.
The facility can start from 7th November.
Twitter may roll out the new verification system by November 7, as Musk has given developers a deadline.
If they fail to complete it within the stipulated date they will lose their jobs. Although Elon Musk did not provide any other details about the improvement.
The Verge reported that the platform will start charging users for blue ticks and will lose the verification badge if people fail to pay for it.
Twitter banned more than 50 thousand Indian accounts
Twitter banned 52,141 Indian accounts promoting content such as child sexual abuse and nudity between August 26 and September 25.
The micro-blogging platform which has now been bought by Elon Musk also removed 1,982 accounts on its platform promoting terrorism in the country.

In addition, the company acted on 43 complaints appealing for the suspension of the Twitter account. Twitter said all these were resolved and appropriate responses were sent.
