New Delhi: Twitter on Saturday removed the verified blue tick from the personal account of Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu.
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.
They said Twitter was in the process of restoring the verification badge.
The last tweet posted from the personal handle was on July 23 last year.
The Vice President uses the official Twitter handle to send out tweets. A response from Twitter was awaited.
The ‘blue tick’ has now been restored.
