X introduces ID verification for paid accounts 🆔✅ Users can receive extra benefits by verifying their account with a government ID.
- What's New? Social media platform X (formerly Twitter) now allows paid users to verify their accounts using a government ID. 🐦➡️X
- Why? This is to prevent impersonation and maintain the integrity of the platform. 🚫🎭
- Partnership: X is partnering with Israel-based verification company AU10TIX for this feature. 🤝🇮🇱
- Benefits: Verified users will get a label "this account is ID verified" and will receive prioritized support from X. More benefits are also in development. 🌟🔵
- Re-verification: Users may be asked to re-verify in case of major account changes or for security reasons. 🔁🔍
- Future Features: X might use ID verification for other features, and users who participate could get extra benefits. 🚀🎁
- Availability: ID verification is available in numerous countries, but currently not in the EU, EEA, or UK due to strict data protection laws. However, this is coming "soon". 🌍🔜
- What's next? : As we warned you all long time ago, this will now start as "just to get some more extra's", but it will end with "its obligated"
