It turns out that among the dead celebrities, there are some who have followed Twitter Blue. Dozens of verified accounts belonging to the deceased stars were found on the social network Elon Musk. We are talking about the accounts of Michael Jackson, Chadwick Boseman, journalist Jamal Khashoggi, etc.

It is reported by Bloomberg.

How the accounts were verified and who paid for it remains a mystery. Some of the records of dead stars are kept by other people. Instead, there are those where there is no activity at all. An example of this is the page of Jamal Khashoggi, which has not been updated since the date of his murder. However, the presence of a checkmark indicates that the account is verified. Its owner – a follower on Twitter Blue – confirmed his phone number.

Twitter does not respond to journalists’ requests.

Recall that against the background of the launch of a new verification system on Twitter, Pope Francis lost the blue checkmark for verifying his account.
