Twitter Removes the Blue Tick from Kuwaiti Agencies and Ministries

Due to a recent change in Twitter rules, the "blue tick" verification has been removed from a number of accounts, including Kuwaiti government-related Twitter accounts.

The policy now removes the verified tick from accounts that were validated using the prior method and charge $8 per month for a subscription to keep the blue tick.

Additionally, Twitter has taken away the blue ticks from accounts belonging to media organizations worldwide that are "state media" or "government-funded media."

All Kuwaiti ministries, with the exception of the Interior and Electricity Ministries, which are subscribers and paid for the blue tick, are among the impacted organizations. The blue tick verification has also been removed for the Kuwait Government Communication Center, Kuwait News Agency, and the majority of other government organizations.
