Twitter removed the blue tick of few Twitter handles, which includes few RSS leaders. Most importantly, the personal handle of the Vice-President of India, Mr. Venkaiah Naidu.

The blue tick of Mohan Bhagwat, Chief of the Rastriya Swayamsevak Sangh and few more leaders are also removed. Twitter set into action on Saturday.

Twitter has removed the blue tick badge from several RSS leaders over the past days. These accounts were given verified blue tick badges in 2019 by Twitter.

The list includes prominent Sangh leaders – Gopal Krishna, Arun Kumar and former leaders Suresh Soni and Suresh B Joshi.

Twitter, the micro blogging website is recently in the news for not complying with the rules of the Indian government. Surprisingly, in a new provocation, blue tick badge of the personal handle of Vice President of India was removed on Saturday.

However, objections were raised, by the officials of the Vice-President’s office. Twitter restored the blue tick within a few hours.

ANI, a news agency reported that the verified status had been removed from @MvenkaiahNaidu for “inactivity” “The personal account of Venkaiah Naidu was inactive for six months and the blue badge has gone” an official from the Vice-President’s office quoted this.

On the contrary, the accounts of Former Union Ministers Arun Jaitley and Sushma Swaraj had stayed verified long after their death in 2019.
