Who Twitter Blue?

Maybe you have heard about Twitter being in the news lately 🤣. With Elon’s recent purchase of Twitter and the release of Twitter Blue Verification, there has been a lot of discussion around the “Verification Icon.” In the past, its always been reserved for those notable in government, news, entertainment, or another designated category. Some users are excited to be verified finally, and some think it will ruin Twitter.

Inspired by Wes Bos’s Tweet, I hacked together a Chrome Extension that swaps out the verification icon with an emoji for users who paid for Twitter Blue. You can choose between 🤑, 💰, or 💩 emoji icons—also, thanks to  Will Seagar and Walter Lim for their eight-dollars package. Remember, this extension is just for fun and is not to be taken too seriously. Warning it could break at any time.

I’m curious what are your thoughts on the changes to the verification system and Twitter Blue?

One thought to “Who Twitter Blue?”

  1. Interesting post. I have been following this topic pretty close. I have friends in Silicon Valley and Seattle that hotly debate this topic. Mostly are cons against Musk. Which is a shame. I have read via the NYT that Twitter has been losing $4 million/day for the past decade. Wow. I sure hope you stay off this topic. As it seems this topic, like politics wrecks friendships. :-))) I send this with the best intentions and as a regular reader of your posts 🙂

    Regards,
    Bob
