Elon Musk SWIPES Blue Ticks from Hillary Clinton Bill Gates in Brutal Twitter Purge

Twitter CEO Elon Musk began removing legacy blue ticks from large official accounts, including Hillary Clinton, Bill Gates, and others, in a brutal purge against those who refused to pay the subscription fee to keep their verification badges.

After Musk bought Twitter for $44 billion in October last year, he vowed legacy blue tick marks would eventually be removed if high-profile accounts failed to pay their monthly subscription fee of $8 and $11.

Before Musk took control of Twitter, the blue tick symbol served as a ‘corrupt’ status symbol for elite personalities and establishment media, allowing them privileges with account reach and credibility.

Now those days are over.

We never thought we would see the day when The Daily Fetched Twitter account has a verified blue check mark, while Clinton and Gates accounts, minus the blue ticks, look like one of those spammy accounts you see pumping out dodgy news stories from questionable sources, oh wait!

See it!

Meanwhile, other Twitter accounts like founder Jack Dorsey and Pope Francis have also seen their verification revoked.

Meanwhile, Establishment media outlets have been receiving similar treatment.

Earlier this month, Musk removed the “state-affiliated media” on NPR’s account, replacing it with a “government-funded media” label.

The Twitter CEO then followed suit with PBS and CBC.

The “government-funded media” label is used to show Twitter users when a media outlet receives funding from the Government.

Earlier this week, Musk revealed that Twitter was being run like a “glorified activist organization” which was “absurdly overstaffed” before he took over.

The Twitter CEO said slashing the company’s workforce by 80% was easy because he was not concerned about censoring Twitter users.

“Turns out, you don’t need all that many people to run Twitter,” Musk of his cutbacks.

“I mean, if you’re not trying to run some sort of glorified activist organization, and you don’t care that much about censorship, then you can really let go of a lot of people it turns out,” Musk added.

“I think we just had a situation at Twitter where it was absurdly overstaffed,” Musk argued, comparing the platform to a “group text service at scale.”
