On Thursday, Elon Musk began his Twitter mission of removing the verification badge from the accounts of people who have not taken up the subscription model for the same. The $8 dollar subscription model is part of Musk’s Twitter Blue subscription model, which allows users to pay for verification since December. This has led to high-profile personalities on Twitter losing their verification, including the likes of Bill Gates, Kim Kardashian, and also Twitter founder Jack Dorsey.
Mahomes is incensed about losing his Twitter verification, he’s not showing it. Tagging Musk on a tweet, the QB said, “Let me get my blue check back” with a bunch of laughing emojis. The young QB has almost 2.4 million people following him on Twitter. And being one of the top QBs in the NFL, it is kind of odd to see his profile without verification now.
The Chiefs QB had previously questioned Twitter taking away the blue verification tick from profiles. When he tweeted about it, he got a reply asking him to pay for the $8 dollar subscription. He had a hilarious response to it back then.
Now, 2X Super Bowl-winning QB Patrick Mahomes has also joined the list, and he had a message for the Twitter CEO. After previously declining to pay for the verification for a hilarious reason, the Kansas City Chiefs QB must surely be regretting that now.
