Burna Boy , Davido, and Wizkid Award-winning superstar singers have lost their Twitter badges after reportedly failing to comply with Twitter CEO, Elon Musk’s new rules.
Last year Twitter had made plans to start charging nearly $20 a month for users to stay verified.
This is part of a premium service that will be rolled out under Elon Musk’s leadership, according to a report.
Musk, who took over as the CEO of the social media platform, in a tweet on Sunday, October 30, said,
“The whole verification process is being revamped right now”.
There is also plans to raise its optional $ 4.99-a-month premium subscription called Twitter Blue to $19.99 a month. However, that price is subject to change.
Failure to comply with his new rules meant an automatic loss of one’s verification, which social media users use in differentiating a celebrity’s page and that of the common man.
Keeping to his words, Twitter has started stripping celebrities and public figures of their Twitter badges.
After a check was conducted on their respective Twitter pages by bluebloodz.com the new changes was noticed.
