Twitter Venkaiah Naidu restores blue tick on personal handle, says it fell due to inactivity

Twitter has restored the blue tick on the personal handle of Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu hours after it was briefly dropped and said it was done due to inactivity.

Twitter has restored the blue tick or “verified” badge on the personal handle of Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu hours after it was dropped, prompting India to flag the verification removal to the social media giant.

As India flagged the blue tick removal from the personal account of M Venkaiah Naidu, Twitter said it was done due to a long gap in login.

Officials of the Vice President Secretariat said the personal Twitter handle of Naidu @MVenkaiahNaidu was inactive for a long time and the Twitter algorithm removed the blue badge. The last tweet posted from the personal handle was on July 23 last year.

While the blue tick from Venkaiah Naidu’s personal Twitter handle was dropped, the official handle of the Vice President of India, @VPSecretariat, which has 9.3 lakh followers, continued to have the blue badge. Venkaiah Naidu’s personal Twitter handle has over 13 lakh followers.

Sources say that the Vice President’s Office raised a concern with Twitter India and they were told that the move was not deliberate and since the Vice President hadn’t logged into his personal account since July last year, the account automatically lost its verified status due to inactivity.

While the Vice President’s Office was in touch with Twitter India, alarm bells were ringing in the government. The top sources say that the “govt was fuming on how the social media platform removed the blue badge from the personal Twitter handle of Vice President of India.”

The officials said Twitter was contacted after they noticed this morning that the blue tick was removed. Before 10.30 am, the blue tick badge was restored, they said.

Twitter said the account has been inactive since July 2020. It said the verified badge has now been restored. The Vice President uses the official Twitter handle @VPSecretariat to send out tweets.
