The infamous "Blue Check" of Twitter is now labeled a brain-rotting disease by the CDC on Monday. Several studies conducted by the CDC and various third party researchers concluded that receiving the "Blue Check" on Twitter leads to cognitive dysfunction.
Twitter's "Blue Check" was designed to verify highly well known people on their social media platform and distinguish them from fake and parody accounts. They were intended to verify celebrities, official company accounts, and political figures. However, once they started verifying journalists, a communicable disease formed, according to researchers. After journalists started receiving the Blue Checkmark around 2015, around the time Trump announced his run for presidential office, the CDC has found that the intellect and literary skills of those who received Blue Check marks fallen, while at the same time hostile verbiage was on the rise. Even those who received their marks on Twitter before journalists got them started to suffer similarly.
Symptoms of this Blue Check disease includes:
Deterioration in Writing and Reading Abilities
Decrease in Empathy
Increased Hormonal and Emotional Sensitivity
The CDC recommends if you were given a Blue Check mark on Twitter to immediately deactivate your account and avoid all social media for 4-6 weeks and immediately contact your doctor. They also recommend every other user to navigate the social media space carefully and to socially distance from Twitter and its users.
