The Twitter we knew is still in the process of disappearing. His latest controversy is again related to verification badges. However, in this case, Elon Musk made a completely extreme decision: remove the blue tags from all profiles that are not subscribed to the Twitter Blue service. Until now, it seemed to go to all accountsbut the social network seems to have its favorites.

This weekend, Several profiles with more than one million followers have reported the return of the blue badge.. Among them are such personalities as writer Neil Gaiman, singer Lil Nas X, actress Janelle Parrish and footballer Riyad Maharez. How do we know these people didn’t pay to subscribe to Twitter Blue? Because they have taken it upon themselves to clarify it. And the thing is, even though they own the accounts, they don’t know what’s going on either.

“I’m so confused on Twitter these days… I didn’t pay for the blue tick but it’s still there. I don’t know, find me on Instagram, I don’t care.” a comment Janelle Parrish.

In a similar post, author Neil Gaiman says that “for the curious, I don’t follow Twitter Blue. I didn’t give my phone number to anyone. What a sad and confusing place this has become,” and attaches a screenshot of the message from the platform.

What’s Happening With Twitter Ticks Now?

It seems that the affairs within the company confuse users. In past, Elon Musk has already expressed a desire to personally pay for some celebrities’ Twitter Blue subscriptions.. Among them are LeBron James, Stephen King and William Shantner. However, while the businessman hasn’t given any other names, it appears to be expanding.

One theory claimed that the Twitter confirmation badge would be reinstated for accounts with over a million followers. However, a programmer named Travis Brown studies the situation and notes that there are more than 110 accounts exceeding this number, to which the brand has not yet been returned characteristic.

Over the past few days, most of the accounts that have kept their checkbox up to date they lost it all of a sudden. This caused a frenzy on the social network: a group of people refused to pay for the subscription that Musk demanded, while others were left with no choice but to prevent impersonation of their identity.

The transition from Twitter to the government of Elon Musk is much more bumpy than the mogul would like to admit. From mass layoffs without cause, to lawsuits against an executive for non-payment of company offices in various cities around the world, to restitution of the accounts of supremacists and other polarizing characters. What is the future of the social network? We don’t know for sure, but it’s not on the right track.
