It’s chaos on Twitter. #BlueTick trends on the bird app as Elon Musk snatches away blue tick privileges from renowned figures from around the world, including Indian celebrities and luminaries. Amongst those who lost their legacy blue ticks are Bollywood celebs like Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, and others. Sports figures like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Sachin Tendulkar, and others have lost their legacy verification. Among politicians, opposition leader Rahul Gandhi, sitting UP CM Yogi Adityanath are the casualties of Twitter’s blue tick policy. Shark Tank India’s Anupam Mittal, Namita Thapar, ex-shark Ashneer Grover, and others have lost blue ticks.

Vir Das tweeted farewell to the legacy blue tick. The comedian writes that he is okay with impersonators on the platform who will have to take the brunt of everything he has to deal with.

Bye blue tick. I’m okay with someone impersonating me on twitter. YOU deal with the things they call me 😊

Prakash Raj bids adieu as well. The veteran actor and activist writes that he will continue with his conversations, sharing his journey with the people, and will keep #justasking.

Bye bye #BlueTick …. It was nice having you….my journey ..my conversations..my sharing…will continue with my people … you take care #justasking

Meanwhile, Elon Musk remarked that he is paying for the new Twitter Blue subscription for LeBron James, William Shatner, and Stephen King. The ‘king of horror’ was not very amused to see himself subscribed to Twitter Blue without consent. However, Elon being Elon, he wrote ‘you’re welcome. Namaste!’

Just Shatner, LeBron and King
