Chin’ono says he will get the Twitter Blue tick under protest

Prominent Journalist Hopewell Chin’ono says he will get the Twitter blue tick under protest after it was removed from profiles not subscribed to Twitter Blue subscription.

Yesterday, a number of celebrities, world leaders and journalists lost their Twitter blue verification badges.

Writing on Twitter, Chin’ono said he doesnt believe in paying for the Blue tick, ” but for the sake of avoiding impersonation , I will get it under protest”.

He added that his presence and that of others on social media generates millions a day for the owners of the platforms hence they are not doing anyone a favor buy charging the Blue Tick.

Individual users of Twitter must buy a $8 monthly subscription to keep their blue verification checkmarks on the platform.
