Twitter restores blue tick to high profile accounts
Some Twitter accounts with more than one million followers have had their blue tick badges re-instated by Twitter without paying to subscribe. Beyoncé, Harry Kane, Richard Osman and Victoria Beckham are among those to have their blue tick back. Before the platform was bought by Elon Musk, the blue tick was a badge of verification given for free by Twitter. The broadcaster James O'Brien, who has 1.1m followers, is one of those who has now got his blue tick back after losing it. At the time of writing, some celebrities like actor Ryan Reynolds who also owns Wrexham football club, still has no blue tick despite having over 21m followers.
