Twitter's Blue Badge Verification System Under Fire as Celebrities Lose Verification Status

Twitter's blue badge verification system has come under fire once again as many high-profile celebrities, including Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, and Kim Kardashian, lost their verified status on the platform. The move comes after Twitter began removing "legacy" blue ticks from users who have not yet paid for Twitter Blue plans. Among the users affected by this move is former President Donald Trump, who is no longer verified on the platform.

Twitter has disabled the account of former President Donald Trump following the Capitol Hill riot on January 6, 2021. The move came after Trump's tweets were found to have violated the platform's policies against glorifying violence.

In a series of tweets, Trump had encouraged his supporters to march to the Capitol and "never give up" and had also praised the rioters as "great patriots" while the Capitol was being attacked. Twitter initially flagged these tweets for misinformation and temporarily locked Trump's account, but later made the decision to permanently suspend his account.

The move was met with mixed reactions, with some praising Twitter for taking a stand against the spread of misinformation and incitement of violence on the platform, while others criticized the move as a violation of free speech.

Twitter's Blue Tick

Twitter's blue badge verification system was initially created to verify the identities of high-profile individuals and organizations on the platform. However, over the years, the system has been criticized for being too arbitrary and lacking transparency. In response to these criticisms, Twitter announced in 2021 that it would revamp its verification system and introduced the Twitter Blue subscription service.

Under the new system, users who wish to be verified must first pay for the Twitter Blue subscription service, which costs $7 per month if they sign up via a Web browser, and $11 per month if they sign up through the iOS or Android app. The move has been met with mixed reactions, with some users praising the platform for introducing a more transparent system, while others have criticized the move as being exclusionary.

The removal of the blue tick verification status from high-profile users has generated a significant amount of backlash on social media, with many users arguing that the move is unfair and arbitrary. Some have suggested that the move is particularly problematic for smaller accounts that rely on verification to gain visibility and credibility on the platform.

Others have pointed out that the blue tick verification system has been problematic from the outset, and that the move to introduce a paid subscription service does not solve the fundamental issues with the system. Critics argue that the system is too arbitrary and that Twitter has not provided clear guidelines on what constitutes a "high-profile" user.

In conclusion, Twitter's blue badge verification system has once again come under fire as high-profile celebrities, including former President Donald Trump, lose their verification status on the platform. While the move to introduce a paid subscription service may have been intended to address some of the criticisms of the system, it has generated significant backlash, with many users arguing that the system remains arbitrary and exclusionary. As Twitter continues to grapple with these criticisms, it remains to be seen whether the platform will introduce more transparent guidelines for its verification system.
