Verifiable Disgust

This is A Thing That Actually Fucking Happened: Taliban is buying blue checkmarks on Twitter. No, I am neither joking nor making this shit up because it is real and happening.

At least two Taliban officials and four prominent supporters in Afghanistan are currently using the checkmarks.

Hedayatullah Hedayat, the head of the Taliban’s department for “access to information”, now has the tick.

There are others as well. To say this makes me feel violently ill is the understatement of the fucking century.

Muhammad Jalal, who previously identified as a Taliban official, praised the new owner of Twitter on Monday, declaring that Elon Musk was “making Twitter great again”.

Of course, this doesn’t faze Elongated Muskrat one fucking bit. It’s money and that’s all that matters to that sleezeball.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have more important things to do, like making a post on Mastodon. #FuckTwitter

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
