The company responsible for the platform Twitter gave some of its accounts with more than a million followers a blue check mark without those accounts paying for the subscription.

Accounts returned by Blue Dick include those of Beyoncé, Harry Kane, Richard Osman and Victoria Beckham.

The BBC News Twitter account also got its gold badge back, but it didn’t pay.

Before Elon Musk bought the site, the blue tick symbol of account verification was provided free by Twitter.
