Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian, Ant and Dec and many more celebrities are no longer Twitter verified after the site removed the ticks that verify their identity. The website confirmed that the legacy verified checkmarks would be removed from the platform on April 20. The main way people can get their blue ticks is to sign up for Twitter Blue, which costs over £100 a year in the UK.
Stars who have lost their blue ticks, and have yet to sign up for Twitter Blue, include Victoria Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo, Jay-Z, Prince William and Princess Kate.
Ricky Gervais, Mason Mount, Naomi Campbell, Cheryl Tweedy, Lady Gaga, Piers Morgan and Harry Styles are some of the others who are no longer verified. Shortly after losing his verified tick, Chelsea midfielder Mason took to his page, saying: “Over the years I’ve thoroughly enjoyed connecting with you all on Twitter. Sadly, the platform is changing so I have decided to delete my account.”
Not every person who has kept their blue ticks has paid for Twitter Blue as some legacy accounts retained their check marks if linked to a verified organisation, including Barack Obama’s personal page.
