National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetang’ula has expressed his joy after his Twitter account received a blue badge after years of remaining unverified.
The account, which is now boasting of 933,000 followers, was verified on Saturday, two weeks after he was elected National Assembly Speaker and resigned from his post as Bungoma Senator-elect.
Wetang’ula announced the new achievement with joy and wrote: “Finally, Twitter verified us tweeps.”
The verification of Wetang’ula’s official account will help Twitter users to determine fake information tweeted by parody accounts, which also have a good number of followers.
