(NewsNation) — Twitter is delaying changes to the blue checkmark until after the midterm elections, according to a report from the New York Times.

According to the report, employees raised concerns about the possibility for misinformation leading up to and during the midterm election.

Previously, Elon Musk launched a new Twitter Blue premium subscription service a week into his ownership of the social media company.

“Starting today, we’re adding great new features to Twitter Blue, and have more on the way soon,” the company said in the App Store announcement.

For $7.99 per month, users can get a blue checkmark verification on their accounts.

Twitter Blue was launched in the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand for in-app purchase for iOS and Android.

According to the company, Twitter Blue is just the beginning. The announcement also eluded to future changes, including, half the ads, the ability to post longer videos and a priority ranking for quality content.

“Power to the people,” the announcement said.
