Twitter has yet again gotten itself into a messy ground after it mysteriously de-verified renowned actor, Danny DeVito’s account. As the blue tick disappeared without any prior notice, bringing the actor to huddle with the common folk, memes have started their usual work. Although the reasons for this sudden action are yet to attain clarity, some speculations and brilliant guesswork lead to the probable reason for the move. Probably, the sudden disappearance of the coveted blue ticks may be in response to the actor expressing support through a post for the Nabisco workers. Although, Twitter by all means can argue that it was a mere coincidence. Although coincidences as coincidental as this one might be a bit hard to stomach. Twitter might get caught in a tangle of heated debates and fury if the action was in response to the Nabisco workers post, because if a social media platform that is expected to be neutral begins to take away the blue ticks because of the expression of a personal opinion, then that might lead to the general public’s anger reaching a tick off point. Here is the last tweet by the actor before he got unverified.
Support Nabisco workers striking for humane working hours, fair pay, outsourcing jobs.
NO CONTRACTS NO SNACKS

Responses on Twitter
Whether something happens outside Twitter, or within Twitter, the first response and reaction will be inevitably on Twitter. Let us not delve into the irony there. Seems like Twitter verifications are written on water and not on concrete. Because you never know, when one fine day, it will be a thing of the past. Although Twitter has stated a hazy set of excuses and reasons for the de-verification, it does not look like the social media platform managed to earn the vote of confidence of netizens.
While Twitter might be busy thinking about getting out of this tangle, Twitter users are going all out with the hilarious memes. After all, Twitterati never lets go of a chance to polish their sarcasm and humor. And polish it, they do with finesse. It is well evident from the flurry of memes that have been gracing Twitter ever since the news came out. Let us flip through a few hilarious memes.

Like they say “sometimes the wrong train takes you to the right station.”
I'm glad all these news stories about Danny DeVito losing his checkmark are bringing more attention to the Nabisco strike, good job Jack.

Talk about hardcore support.
Twitter unverified Danny DeVito for supporting strikers but they’re okay with Marjorie Taylor Greene equating vaccination passports to the Holocaust and Lauren Boebert praising the Taliban.
Danny was a legend before they were born and he’ll be a legend long after they’re gone.

At this point, with all the backlash coming from all sides, it seems like Twitter is more in need of protection.
We must protect Danny DeVito at all costs.
