Twitter’s blue checkmark was once the internet scar in the form of lightning. It meant that you were marked by the destiny to achieve great things, and all unverified actors had to kneel at your feet. That was before Elon Musk bought Twitter. Verification now is a lot like a Louis Vuitton bag – you’ve paid for the privilege of showing you have more money than common sense. But the joke on us once had a little privilege. Now, as the popular Twitch and YouTube Streamer Ludwig discovered, users who spent eight dollars to verify are using their newly discovered status to send a message to their favorite gaming celebs.

Musk’s great plan to let random Twitter users pay $8 per month to check out is Go great Until now. Subscribers don’t actually have to provide proof of their identities in order to get the legendary check mark, which allowed new accounts to impersonate a celebrity. People And the Major gaming brands. Twitter has attempted to combat misinformation by offering a secondary type of verification to certain prominent accounts, calling them “official,” but undo it in the same day. And this particular story happened because of a specific one Twitter Blue feature: Those who pay high prices have their messages boosted by the algorithm.

Yesterday, YouTube streamer Ludwig Anders Ahgren, Who once set the record for most concurrent Twitch subscribersHe tweeted that “dozens” of newly verified accounts had apparently bought Twitter Blue so he could see their direct messages.

Just in case anyone thinks they are enjoying the prospect of receiving more parasitic direct messages than randomness.

my box I reached out to Ahgren to ask if any of the messages explicitly stated that she had purchased Twitter Blue as a way to contact him. Again send a screenshot of a message that reads: “Haha, I bought verification so you can see my message.”

Fabulous. Not only is this result incredibly scary, it also shows that Musk has no idea how to make a good website. Being able to see your friends’ tweets and messages occasionally is the main advantage of ever having a Twitter account. And Musk’s cliched idea is to replace those people in your feeds with random ones who happen to have $8 in their sock drawer. maybe this no A good thing to do for people whose presence on the Bird app is a magnet for others, and who ensure that there are millions of people on your platform in the first place?

But hey, I’m not the one who bought Twitter. I’m just one of the millions who have to deal with the guy who did it.
