Hold onto your seats, Twitter users! A quirky bug on the platform is giving legacy blue check holders a jumpscare by temporarily restoring their coveted badge of (dis)honor when they update their bios. And no, you don't have to be "notable in government, news, entertainment, or another designated category" to witness this amusing glitch.
The best part? It doesn't matter what you add to your bio - even a few spaces will do the trick. The blue checkmark makes a brief comeback, leaving users bewildered and chuckling at the same time. But worry not, once you refresh the page, the checkmark vanishes into thin air, as though it was never there.
The ephemeral nature of the bug has users questioning if anyone else can even see the checkmark reappear. For those concerned about being mistaken for Elon Musk supporters, you can breathe a sigh of relief.
This amusing glitch likely stems from the platform's internal code, which still distinguishes between legacy verified users and those with the newer Blue verification. But who can say for sure? If we were to contact Twitter for an explanation, we might just get a poop emoji in response. It seems that when a social media platform lays off a significant portion of its staff, coding quality takes a hit.
So go ahead, update your bio and enjoy this fleeting moment of verification glory. It's a wild ride on the Twitter rollercoaster, and we're all here for the laughs!
