The blue tick was once a coveted sign on Twitter indicating a verified account and a public figure of importance. Getting verified on Twitter was one of the moments of celebration for several Twitter influencers and people striving to make a mark in public life. Musk had already indicated a few months ago that users would have to pay $9 per month for the blue tick and even normal Twitter handles had the option to subscribe to “Twitter Blue” and get a blue tick on their accounts. However, even after the introduction of Twitter Blue, public figures whose handles were verified previously still retained the legacy blue tick.

All of this changed today, when Twitter woke up to see even the biggest celebrities like Ronaldo, Virat Kohli, and Justin Bieber, lose their blue tick. Twitteratis reacted to this development in their signature style with memes and jokes.
