Why did BCCI lose its Blue Tick Verification on X? CHECK NOW

The official Twitter account of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) experienced the removal of its verified badge (blue tick) on the social media platform, X (previously referred to as Twitter). This incident occurred just prior to the commencement of the fifth T20 international match against the West Indies held in Lauderhill, Florida, USA, resulting in puzzlement among fans.

Subsequently, it was unveiled that the reason behind the verification badge’s removal was the board’s response to an appeal made by PM Narendra Modi on a Sunday morning.

As the 77th Independence Day approaches, slated for August 15th, the Prime Minister has appealed to his fellow compatriots to engage in the #HarGharTiranga initiative. This campaign involves substituting their profile pictures on various social media channels with the Indian tricolor flag.

PM Modi wrote on his Official X handle,

“In the spirit of the #HarGharTiranga movement, let us change the DP of our social media accounts and extend support to this unique effort which will deepen the bond between our beloved country and us.”

Demonstrating his support, BCCI adopted this change. In the updated regulations of the social networking platform known as X, the verification badge will be withdrawn from a confirmed user whenever alterations are made to their profile picture. However, this badge will be reinstated within a span of three to four days after X’s review of the account.

Notably, Prime Minister Modi retained his distinguished grey badge (typically assigned to individuals affiliated with governmental or multilateral entities, including officials representing governments or multilateral organizations) even after modifying his profile picture to feature the Indian flag on Sunday. The BCCI is expected to reclaim the verified status prior to the commencement of the Asia Cup tournament.
