Elon Musk has brought many changes in Twitter after buying it, other than changing its name to “X”, one of the biggest changes that have taken place is in regard to the blue tick verification.
Earlier, getting a blue tick was a very difficult task but now anyone who is ready to pay a fixed amount monthly can get a blue tick but there are still many sportspersons and celebs who haven’t taken the blue tick and this has led to confusion many times as there are many fake accounts of celebs.
Recently, the England cricketer Alex Hales announced his retirement from international cricket but he will continue playing franchise cricket. Alex Hales made this announcement on his Instagram account with the caption, “It’s been a pleasure @englandcricket”
A fake account of Alex Hales used this as an opportunity to irritate the Indian cricket fans by writing about and posting the photos from England-India match from the T20 World Cup 2022 in which England defeated India by 10 wickets.
The fake account whose id is @rixzz177 posted, “After an incredible journey on the pitch, it’s time to bid farewell to this chapter of my life. Grateful for the memories, the camaraderie, and the love of the game. Thank you all for your unwavering support! 170-0 is still one of the most memorable innings of my career”
