Giving greater visibility to those who have a “blue check mark”, this means everyone is equal but some are more equal than others:

But the program has come under fire because Twitter uses the blue check mark as a signal in ranking what tweets people see. In the past, Dorsey had said the program needed to be rethought

A lot of things about Twitter are starting to make sense:

  • Twitter used algorithms to shadow ban people, based in part, on who was following them. (This after denying they shadow banned people.)
  • Twitter gives greater visibility to those with verified accounts.
  • Twitter’s rules for determining who gets shadow banned or suspended are very complex to the point that few people actually understand them.

Basically, Twitter is turning into Brownian noise or perhaps we should call it Blue noise (roughly the opposite of Brownian) for its emphasis on blue check marks.
