But to me....it's more than that. It's a sign of awesomeness. A sign that you're worth following on Twitter. I don't know why, cuz I almost never follow people with little blue ticks (mostly cuz I'm terrified) and there's a TON of tweeps worth following who have no little blue tick. If Twitter gave me a little blue tick I'd be all like "mommy lookit me and my little blue tick!" hopping up and down. There's no way I'll ever get one anyways, cuz no one would ever imposterize* me.....except for me. Ha.
So I've made my own little blue tick. It's sole purpose is to make me feel special. It doesn't have any identity-verification powers whatsoever!
If Charlie were to verify-himself as awesome and worth following with this #BlueTICK Twibbon, it might look something like this.
UPDATE: There are now over 250 #BlueTICK Twibbon supporters on Twitter and Facebook which is kinda interesting. Although silly on the surface, it seems to have resonated somehow.
I tried to keep track of everyone by creating a #BlueTICK List on Twitter, so if you're look for self-verified awesome, just follow the list. If your name is missing, just give me a mention and I'll add you.
PS. I drew this post riding on a very fun convo I had with some lovely people on twitter today. You know who you are.
PPS. I do love my self.
#BlueTICK gear is now available in my Zazzle Shop.
