Twitter recently started the process of removing ‘legacy verified ticks’ from different accounts after launching their paid subscription called ‘Twitter Blue’. In the process, various celebrities lost their ‘verified status’ on the microblogging platform and among them is Sachin Tendulkar. Recently, a fan asked the Master Blaster about this change in his Twitter profile and also received a witty reply from the cricketer.
It all started with a tweet by Sachin Tendulkar in which he invited his Twitter followers to a question and answer session. “My #AskSachin debut here on Twitter. Bring on some interesting questions!” he tweeted. His post received several replies, including one where a Twitter user asked him about the loss of the blue tick. “Now that, you don't have the blue tick, how can we be sure that you're the real Sachin Tendulkar? #AskSachin,” they asked. To which, the cricketer wrote, “As of now, this is my blue tick verification!” and shared a selfie.
