Use this Chrome extension to see who paid $8 for a blue checkmark on Twitter
On Wednesday, Twitter launched the new Twitter Blue subscription, which includes the same blue checkmark that previously denoted verified accounts. Anyone can get a checkmark, and at a glance, it is impossible to tell whether a user has a checkmark because they are notable in their field or simply paid $8 for it. This opens the door to endless scams and pranks, but thankfully, there is already a reliable solution for Chrome users.

As spotted by 9to5Mac editor-in-chief Chance Miller, two software developers built a Chrome extension that can show you who just paid $8 for Twitter Blue and who is actually verified by Twitter. The extension replaces the checkmarks to make it clear how all of the users on your timeline got their blue checkmarks in the first place.
