New Delhi: Twitter on Saturday removed the verified blue tick from the handle of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagawat.

Apart from him, four other senior RSS functionaries too lost the verification badges, said sources in the right-wing volunteer organisation.

Earlier in the day, Twitter removed and later restored the verified blue tick on the personal account of Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu.

Officials of the Vice President Secretariat said the personal Twitter handle of Naidu @MVenkaiahNaidu was inactive for a long time and the Twitter algorithm removed the blue badge.

They said Twitter was in the process of restoring the verification badge. The last tweet posted from the personal handle was on July 23 last year.

The officials said Twitter was contacted after they noticed this morning that the blue tick was removed. Before 10.30 am, the blue tick badge was restored, they said.

Twitter said the account has been inactive since July 2020. It said the verified badge has now been restored. The Vice President uses the official Twitter handle @VPSecretariat to send out tweets.
