Twitter’s billionaire owner Elon Musk on Sunday said that Twitter will soon enable organizations to identify Twitter accounts associated with them as the new Twitter owner continues to find ways to limit fake accounts on the platform.

“Rolling out soon,” Musk said in a tweet on Sunday. “Twitter will enable organizations to identify which other Twitter accounts are actually associated with them.”

He did not elaborate.

The social media platform paused its recently announced $8 blue check subscription service on Friday as fake accounts mushroomed, and new owner Elon Musk brought back the “official” badge to some users of the social media platform.

Fake accounts purporting to be big brands have popped up with the blue check since the new roll-out, including Musk’s Tesla and SpaceX, as well as Roblox, Nestle, and Lockheed Martin.

Musk in a tweet Saturday said that Twitter Blue will probably “come back end of next week.”

Musk on Thursday raised the possibility of Twitter going bankrupt, the day its trust and safety leader exited the company.

Twitter did not immediately respond to Reuters’ request for comment.
