Twitter has apparently disabled tweets from verified accounts

blank

While verified users are unable to tweet, they can still retweet. Several prominent Twitter accounts (like NBC News below) have taken to posting from alternate accounts and then retweeting them from their official verified accounts as a workaround.

Most, if not all of the hacked accounts from earlier in the day were from verified accounts such as Elon Musk and Barack Obama. This could be the company’s way of preventing more of those crypto scam tweets from occurring, at least temporarily. Verified Twitter accounts typically include not just celebrities and politicians, but also media outlets, brands, emergency services, public transit alert systems, official government agencies and more.
