Thando Thabethe Claims Elon Musk is Paying for her Verified Twitter Account

Thando Thabethe, a media personality, actress, and reality TV star from South Africa is one of the few celebrities who still has a verified Twitter account, even after claiming that she won’t pay for it.

In response to Elon Musk’s recent decision to remove blue checkmarks from verified accounts, most celebrities, both locally and internationally, refused to pay the $8.00 to retain their verified Twitter accounts. However, Thando Thabethe is claiming that Elon Musk is actually paying for her account.

Elon Musk On Twitter Verification Badges

Elon Musk had claimed to be paying for only three Twitter blue checkmark accounts of Lebron James, Stephen King, and William Shatner. Other Twitter users who still have their blue checkmark verification are paying the $8.00 from their own pockets.

When the blue checkmarks verification began to disappear two weeks ago when the company fully moved over to its new subscription service called Twitter Blue, even celebrities with millions of following immediately lost their blue checkmarks.

However, last week Thursday, author Stephen King noticed his checkmark was still on his account, despite promises from Twitter that all checkmarks would be removed if users aren’t paying for the subscription.

Tweeps started noticing that actually Thando Thabethe still has her blue checkmark verification, even after she publicly claimed that she won’t be paying for the subscription.

Thabethe quickly responded by saying that she is not paying for her Twitter blue checkmark verification. When asked who paid for her subscription, Thando Thabethe then proceeded to elude that it is actually Elon Musk who is paying for her blue checkmark Twitter subscription.

According to Pop Base, celebrities will now regain their blue checkmarks without paying the $8.00 subscription.
