(San Francisco, CA) -- Elon Musk says the deadline before Twitter gets rid of legacy blue checkmarks will be April 20th.

The Twitter head changed the social media platform's verification system so anyone who pays for a Twitter Blue subscription can be verified.

Musk, who is infamous for posting 'memes', has made 4-20 jokes in the past. It's unclear whether this is another one of his jokes about the unofficial day to smoke marijuana or whether April 20th will be the actual cutoff date.

The multi-billionaire CEO also temporarily swapped the Twitter logo with the "doge" Shiba Inu icon from the Dogecoin cryptocurrency and the meme that became popular in 2013.
