New Delhi: Social media giant Twitter on Saturday (June 5) said that the blue tick and verification badge on any Twitter account can be removed if the accounts are inactive for a period of six months. The statement comes on the same day when the blue ticks were removed from the accounts of Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat.

Twitter said that as per its verification policy, any account which shows signs of inactivity or is incomplete can heave their verification badge removed by the microblogging site.

“Inactivity is based on logging in. To keep the account active, the account holder must make sure to log in at least every 6 months,” Twitter said.

Along with the duo, the blue ticks were removed from other RSS members like Suresh Joshi and Arun Kumar.

The microblogging site uses the verified badge to notify the authenticity of handles that are of public interest. It is aimed to enhance public trust by confirming the authenticity of the handle.

The blue tick was restored soon after the issue was raised on social media.
