Reports have it that Dencia and members of Choc Boys; Ice Prince, Brymo, Jesse Jagz excluding MI had their Twitter accounts verified. In view of this they have now joined the likes of Asa, D’Banj, Osaze Odemwinge, Genevieve Nnaji, Oluchi and Nneka who already have their twitter accounts verified.
Also, top stars like 2Face, P-Square, Don Jazzy, Omotola and many other Nigerian celebrities were left out in the twitter verification exercise. This has left many to question twitter’s criteria for account verification of its users.
Findings revealed that a twitter account is verified when a user, who is a public figure is being subjected to activities of impostors, who create ‘fake’ accounts in the name of the original user. This causes problems faced by some celebs when some of their fans find it difficult to identify their true twitter accounts.
With respect to the above criteria, some have questioned the rationale behind Dencia’s twitter account being verified when top stars Omotola, 2Face, P-Square, Don Jazzy and others have not had their twitter accounts verified by social networking site.
