Elon Musk Removes New York Times Twitter Verification, Calls The Outlet' Unreadable Diarrhea'

Twitter CEO Elon Musk is making good on his promises after The New York Times became the first large account to lose its legacy verification.

The New York Times had a yellow check mark prior to April 1st, but now it is nowhere to be seen.

Last month, Twitter announced, “On April 1st, we will begin winding down our legacy verified program and removing legacy verified checkmarks. To keep your blue checkmark on Twitter, individuals can sign up for Twitter Blue.”

In all its glory, below is the New York Times without its verification badge:

According to a report from CNN’s Oliver Darcey, The New York Times said it would not pay a monthly fee for its Twitter account.

The Times also told its writers it would not reimburse them for a Twitter Blue subscription.

But when Twitter Elon Musk heard the New York Times was refusing to pay its verification fee, he simply responded, “Oh ok, we’ll take it off then.”

Just hours after the NYT verification was removed, Musk tweeted that the publication is “propaganda” and “their feed is the Twitter equivalent of diarrhea. It’s unreadable.”

We would wholeheartedly agree with Musk on this one.

Meanwhile, the White House also refused to pay for its Twitter verification and said it would not reimburse staff who purchase Twitter Blu for their accounts, Axios reported.

NBA player Lebron James also refused to pay his verification fee, saying, “Welp guess my blue check will be gone soon cause if you know me I ain’t paying the 5.”

Perfect!!
The NY Slimes, as everyone knows, is almost entirely communist propaganda.
I wouldn’t wrap fish in it.
