I'm pretty sure there's a short story for this one.

Given what MTG and Mo Brooks have said...

I think @Jack is absolutely a neo-Nazi.

Being pro labor in a capitalist society is a no no.

I think he's a centrist, which more and more is just the lawful stupid of political alignments and tends to lean pretty far-right anyway.

His check mark has been restored.

Nice job Twitter... The Tomahawk cruise missiles are inbound to your servers as we speak.

But the Chinese government, the Taliban, etc... all still have their accounts.

It is unclear if DeVito's verified status disappeared because of his tweet.

But we're going to keep assuming that it was, because it gives us more outrage clicks.

Both given startup funds by Russian investors.

Purely coincidence, I'm sure.

After it, therefore because of it.

Used commonly to argue against causation, "just because it happened after doesn't mean it was caused by it."

Unfortunately it's frequently just thrown out to muddy a conversation and as a way to sound smart

I was literally asking if this was the right situation for it. I am far from smart.

If you're looking for personal validation via a checkmark on Twitter, you have my sympathy for just how badly your life has gone.

Well that's a reading comprehension fail on my part.

To be fair (to be faiirrrrrr), it's hard to find another likely cause, though it is very strange for him to have been singled out on this.

After the fact, therefore because Captain Harris told him to.

It was restored after the article was posted.

No.  But regurgitation of that saying doesn't erase it either.  Remember another ssying, "where there's smoke there's fire".

Meh.  His blue checkmark disappeared for a few hours.  The jump to conclusions shuffle is no different than every right-wing kook that screams about being 'shadow banned' because no one responds to their idiocy.

So, what are the good reasons for 'temporarily' un-verifying a verified person?

Number one is human error.

They tried to make me famous but this...this is the reason I turned millions of adoring fans down.  I can't voice an opinion without half the world going batshiat crazy about it.

Glad I chose to be an anonymous person...

AdrienVeidt: So, what are the good reasons for 'temporarily' un-verifying a verified person?


-Human Error
-A glitch
- believe they're rolling out a new method to add checkmarks in the first place (the entire process was shut down for a while while they came up with a new plan) and, perhaps that's slightly automated?  And it glitched out?

I'd wager a good sum of money it was a glitch and not limited to him.

/Funny how fark rails against conspiracy theories... and then makes up a conspiracy for things like this.
//No, twitter did not remove his freaking verified mark purposefully because he tweeted something.  Give me a freaking break.

Speculation regarding the motivations behind a thing that happened is no different from screaming about a thing that didn't happen?

Are you really that desperate to create false equivalences between the far right and the left?

Thats what 9/11 conspiracy theorists say about the 9/11 attacks

He posted a shiatload of other Tweets. Why arent people assuming that those took his checkmark away?

His lack of Oxford Comma use bothers, disturbs, and annoys me.
