Twitter Users Are getting Their $8 Blue Checkmarks And They Are HILARIOUS

Nov 10, 2022

Well, true to his word, Elon started fucking around with people’s “blue checkmarks today – a day after the midterms and I didn’t think it would be this funny.

Let’s get started!

Twitter started issuing 8-dollar blue checkmarks today with “Blue Subscription.” Click the actual blue checkmark to tell the difference between loser checkmarks and real ones.

When you do, you get this if it’s a REAL blue checkmark. If it’s a paid blue checkmark…

You’ll see THIS.

This is so stupid. It’s genius. Elon makes blue tick-hungry posers pay him $8 for the privilege of posing as a natural blue tick, but when you click the blue tick, it calls that person a total poser.

But it’s ok because you’ll get to post longer videos and do other things they’ll never use.

If it were up to me, we’d dub everyone with a fake blue tick “McLovin.”

Seriously. It’s ridiculous. If I paid for one of these fucking things and didn’t already have one, I’d demand people make fun of me. I wouldn’t leave the fucking house or tweet again. I’d feel like an enormous fraud and assume I was a knob and no one wanted to see my tweets.

Every time I hit send, I would feel like a loser.

If you paid for your relevance, so should you.

I’m not mad. It’s just what we should be doing.

Wassup, “McLovins?”
