Time for unverified Twitter to shine!

If you’ve been on Twitter recently, you’ve most likely noticed that verified accounts were unable to tweet for a couple of hours.

That’s due to many high-profile accounts –including those of Barack Obama, Bill Gates, Joe Biden, Elon Musk, Apple, and Uber – being hacked. To take proper precautions, Twitter temporarily blocked verified accounts from tweeting; they could only like and retweet other’s tweets.

Those who aren’t verified were absolutely having a field day with this – and, of course, writing hilarious tweets about the situation. Here are the funniest tweets about verified accounts temporarily losing their power to tweet:

Son: “Dad, was there any part of 2020 that was good?”

Me: “For about one hour in July, verified people on Twitter couldn’t tweet.”
