This browser extension tells you who paid for Twitter verification

Twitter verification is now just $8 away, but that doesn't mean the social network has democratized its long-standing status symbol entirely. The Twitter verification badge is now split between two different groups: accounts that were officially verified for being "notable in government, news, entertainment, or another designated category," and accounts that paid for the checkmark by being subscribed to Twitter Blue. But it can be difficult to tell the difference between the two types of verified accounts without clicking into their individual profiles, which is why one Twitter user created a tool to make it a lot easier.

Introducing Eight Dollars, a simple browser extension that swaps out Twitter's standard verification badge for two different labels that spell out if an account is "actually verified" or if it "paid for verification." Without the extension, you'd need to click on a user's profile, and then tap on the verification checkmark to determine if the user's check was approved by Twitter staff or purchased through Twitter Blue, but Eight Dollars makes that information available directly in your timeline.
