Who Needs Some Blue Ticks?

Doja Cat shared her disinterest in being verified on Twitter after recently losing her blue checkmark

Doja Cat has been rather active on Twitter as of late, as she has been some light-promoting of her next album, revealing that she will be leaning more into rap with her music, and providing updates on her breast-reduction surgery. Most recently, however, the "Kiss Me More" artist lost her verification on her account for the social media site, which appears to users as a blue-checkmark by the username.

Not being verified on Twitter, as with any other social media site, leaves one more vulnerable to being impersonated by anyone who may be eager to do some mischief under someone else's name. Of course, this isn't a situation a celebrity or public figure would like to find themselves in; Doja Cat, on the other hand, could not seem to care less.

When asked by one user about not having the blue-check, she simply replied with "only fans have blue ticks", and in response to another tweet asking if she will buy Twitter Blue, the in-app paid-subscription that allows one to maintain being verified, she declared that "Having a blue tick now means theres a higher chance that you’re a complete loser and that you’re desperate for validation from famous people."

Check out the tweets here:

Doja may have a point in implying that blue-checks on Twitter are far too coveted among social media users, as if getting a verified-check is gaining access into an exclusive-club of some kind when the benefits are for having one are not that grand.

There is also the chaos that has been riddling the site ever since it was acquired by Elon Musk months ago, with strange UI changes and design updates as well as the addition of the added-subscription for verification.

Doja Cat appears very uninterested in paying to be verified, or even with the appearance of a blue-checkmark, but wishing to not be impersonated online is not unreasonable, regardless of whether or not you have Doja's notoriety.

Regardless, the artist seems more interested in focusing on her work and getting her fans excited for new music rather than contemplating over whether or not to add Twitter Blue to her subscriptions.
