The End of Twitter As We Know It

For those of you watching from the cheap seats as Elon Musk burns Twitter to the ground using his personal wealth as the accelerant, here’s the latest:

Anyone can now buy a blue check, even brand new accounts with no followers. There’s no distinction from the “real” blue checks that used to indicate an authority figure has verified the account. So for $8, anyone can pretend to be anyone, or any brand, and there’s no way to tell.

I think you see where this is going.
