Twitter has awarded to Fernando Alonso with the “blue verified badge”. With this symbol, followers of @ alo_oficial may have from now on confident that Fernando’s account is real and is 100% reliable. Twitter uses the blue badge to help users to differentiate the real accounts of the personalities recognized from the false created by users.
Unfortunately there have been several cases of artists, athletes and celebrities who have been supplanted by anonymous people creating fake accounts on Twitter. One of the latter cases has been to Wendi Deng, wife of the chief executive of News Corp. magnate Rupert Murdoch.
Athletes like Rafael Nadal or Pau Gasol also have this badge that authenticates that it is they who chat daily with their legion of followers. Starting today, all followers of Fernando have already the complete assurance that he is the speaker to tell the stories of his day to day.
Indeed, almost 300,000 followers by now. Lets go for the 400,000!!!!
