Twitter has stated that it will still check profiles for the blue tick, but the procedure is likely not as stringent as it is now. The company may want to verify that the profile is genuine and not just spreading false information.
According to Twitter, “All Twitter Blue features will be available immediately, except for the blue checkmark, which will appear on eligible profiles after a review to ensure subscribed accounts meet all eligibility criteria.” The blue check mark will not be available until Twitter has ensured that subscribed accounts meet all eligibility requirements.
