Yodaesque Insight from the Tweeter

November 26, 2020

I read “Twitter to Relaunch Account Verifications in Early 2021, Asks for Feedback on Policy.” Ommmmm. Ommmmm. Account verification. The Tweeter thing, the destroyer of coherence, the maker of faux wizards, has a thought. Tie a Tweeter thing account to a verifiable entity. This is revolutionary or, as Yoda might say, “Revolutionary this is.” Ommmmm. Ommmmm.

I learned:

Twitter will initially verify six types of accounts, including those belonging to government officials; companies, brands and nonprofit organizations; news; entertainment; sports; and activists, organizers and other influential individuals. The number of categories could expand in time. Twitter’s verification system, which provides a blue checkmark to designate accounts belonging to public figures, was paused in 2017 as the company tried to address confusion over what it meant to be verified.

What a startling concept is this? How loud must be the voices from the Victoria Falls must be.

Hey, China likes the idea. Even geezers sitting around the old fashioned truth burning stove in Harrod’s Creek, Kentucky, thinks this is a Yodaesque insight. More accurately, Yoda has a moment of semi-clear thinking. I hear the fail whale thrashing.

Ommmmm. Ommmmm.
