Twitter removes blue tick from personal handle of VP Venkaiah Naidu, later restored
Twitter on Saturday removed the blue verified tick from the personal handle of Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu. However, the official account which is run by the vice president’s secretariat still has a blue tick. A source in Twitter said Naidu’s account may have been unverified through an algorithm as he hasn’t tweeted in almost a year.
According to the micro-blogging site, the blue verified badge on Twitter lets people know that an account of public interest is authentic. To receive the blue badge, your account must be authentic, notable, and active. The IT Ministry lodged a protest with microblogging service provider. Later, Twitter has restored blue verified badge.
