The current verification systems on Twitter may confuse you because some parody accounts or impersonators are even verified as genuine ones. Now you can install Eight Dollars, an extension for browsers, and use it to verify users on Twitter. MiniTool Software will show you how to get Eight Dollars on Chrome, Firefox, and Edge.

You should know that Twitter was purchased by Elon Musk. Now, Twitter is not stable as before because it is in the era of the old and the new. This social media platform has run into many issues due to this. For example, Twitter has two verification systems now. But only one can verify the legitimate accounts.

At present, Twitter Blue subscribers have a checkmark next to their accounts. However, there are many parody accounts or impersonators. Twitter even gives these fake accounts a check mark. It’s unscientific.

On the other hand, some genuine brands have an official badge to help verify it, but that only appears in certain areas of Twitter. This may confuse other users.

To help users verify Twitter accounts, a new extension appears. It is called Eight Dollars. It can tell you the differences between Twitter Blue check marks and verified accounts.
