Twitter Verification gone mad: Jesus Christ got blue badge

Twitter verifies account for Jesus Christ

Twitter has verified the “Jesus Christ” account as a wave of fake accounts was reported after Elon Musk launched the paid verification system.

The Jesus Christ parody account has more than 780,000 followers. The account has been active since 2006 and the location of residence in Israel.

“Twitter has given Jesus Christ a blue verified mark…Things are getting a little confusing on Twitter under Elon Musk,” CNN reported amid reports of fake Twitter accounts rising as verification system rolls out paid out.

Musk has made it clear in the months leading up to the Twitter acquisition that he wanted to revamp the way Twitter verifies accounts and handles bots.

The Twitter Blue subscription was widely launched nearly a year ago as a way to view ad-free articles from some publishers and make other tweaks to the app, such as a different colour home screen icon.

Instead of referring to God, the publications that reference Jesus’ father simply address him as dad. There is also a post showing support for Ukraine and another saying: “Christians hate this simple trick that gets you to heaven. Love.”

Right now, Jesus seems to be the only one in his family with a verified account. An unverified God account has a bio that reads, “I’m not a parody, Elon. I’m actually God, I’m actually almighty, and I actually think you’re crazy.” The message addressed directly to Musk. There seems to be nothing shared by the Virgin Mary or her husband, Jesus’ stepfather, Saint Joseph.

“Twitter has made great strides toward a more rational homeland security model and the relapse will get them in trouble with the FTC” and other regulators in the US and Europe, Stamos said.

The FTC said in a statement Thursday that it is “following recent developments on Twitter with deep concern.”

“No CEO or company is above the law, and companies must follow our consent decrees,” the agency statement said. “Our revised consent order gives us new tools to ensure compliance and we are prepared to use them.”
