The Vatican expects Twitter to guarantee the authenticity of accounts

The Vatican expects Twitter to certify the authenticity of its accounts, like those of the pope with 53 million followers, after the social network removed verification marks from users who do not pay for it, according to a statement issued this Friday.

"Waiting to know the new platform policies, the Holy See hopes that these include the certification of the authenticity of the profiles"says the Vatican.

The social network yesterday withdrew the blue verification marks to the accounts not paid to Twitter Blue, a subscription for 8 dollars a month, thus definitively breaking the practice prior to Elon Musk, when this distinction was given free to public persons.

The pope’s profile has been distinguished with a gray label that it "check" as "a governmental or multilateral organization".

The presence of the pontiffs in this popular social network has just completed a decade, since Benedict XVI inaugurated the profile on December 12, 2012 by sending the first "Tweet".

"Dear friends, I am pleased to get in touch with you via Twitter. Thank’s for your generous answer. I bless all of you with all my heart"he wrote at the time, two months before announcing his resignation from the pontificate.

Since then the account has only grown and currently Francisco accumulates some 53 million followers in its nine profiles, in which he addresses his faithful in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, German, Italian, Polish, Arabic and Latin.

The profile in Spanish is the most visited of all, with 18,931,551 followers, closely followed by the English version.
