The relaunch of the verified blue check subscription has been put to hold by the Twitter CEO Elon Musk, until the micro-blogging site can verify that fake accounts can be eliminated successfully.

He is yet to announced as when the service is anticipated to resume.

Musk launched the $8 blue tick verification plan after he took control of the social media network, but it led to an explosion of parody accounts.

Earlier, only verified accounts of public figures including journalists, legislators, and well-known people were to be assigned the coveted blue tick. To help Twitter increase money, a membership option that is available to anyone willing to pay was launched earlier this month.

Twitter had to suspend the $8 blue tick subscription service within days as the number of fake accounts mimicking famous people and well-known brands surged.

In answer to a Twitter user’s question on November 13, Musk had stated that Twitter Blue will likely “come back end of next week.” However, that possibility is disregarded in light of the Chief Twit’s announcement of what is virtually an extended delay.

In a tweet, made by Elon Musk, he wrote that he would hold off the relaunching of blue verified until there is high confidence of eliminating the impersonation. He added that he would probably use different colour ticks for organisations over individuals.

Musk has argued that the blue tick will be the “great leveller” in defence of the heavily criticised paid verification proposal. He wrote on Twitter that widespread verification will “democratise journalism and will empower the voice of the people.”

To test the new Twitter owner, who calls himself a “free speech absolutist,” verified accounts changed their user names to “Elon Musk,” but this backfired on the strategy. Numerous such accounts, including the two million-follower account of the comedian Kathy Griffin, were suspended.

However, the new laws are still unsigned by the country’s president. Deputy Minister of Law and Human Rights Edward Hiariej said that the new criminal code will take more than 3 years to set up and apply in the country. He further stated that the lawmakers in the country provide the strictest possible explanation that distinguishes between insults and criticism.

Reacting about the same, Yasonna Laoly, minister of law and human rights said that they have tried their best to accommodate the important issues and different opinions which were debated. However, it is time for them to make a historical decision on the penal code amendment and to leave the colonial criminal code we inherited behind, Laoly added in his statement.

Meanwhile, when the planned laws’ draft was shared among the public in 2019, a nationwide protest (mainly led by students) sparked in the country, fearing that the rule might kill the personal freedoms of the citizen. That protest left more than 300 people hurt and many were badly injured.

Zombie Virus memes storms internet after Russian scientists’ revive the virus

Zombie virus has been trending on twitter following the Russian scientists’s reviving a 48,000-year-old virus.

After the Covid-19 epidemic, it is impossible for anyone to handle the terms virus or lockdown. The zombie virus, which had been hidden for decades under a frozen lake in Russia, has suddenly been discovered. Over a dozen ancient viruses were revealed by researchers from the French National Center for Scientific Research, and the so-called “zombie-virus” was found in the Siberian permafrost. The oldest is known to be 48,500 years old and is called as Pandoravirus yedoma.

A twitter user, going by the name of Mr. Stark took the meme game to whole another level by taking a snap from last edition of film Avengers and said that we were in the endgame now.

Another Twitter user asked the question that how did a virus got buried under a lake and what could have been the possible reason behind scientists digging it?

Taking a funny scene of Joey’s reaction, a character from the popular American TV show F.R.I.E.N.D.S., a social media attributed how afraid the people were of another pandemic.

Is there really cause for alarm, even though Twitter is fully anticipating the zombie virus to inflict some sort of retaliatory vengeance upon humanity? In any case, scientists that researched the virus found that it may be contagious and hence pose a health danger. Twitter has begun disseminating memes to handle the news, as it normally does.

The reports claim that the thawing of old permafrost layers increases the likelihood of older virus particles remaining contagious and re-entering the population. Therefore, if the scientists are isolating live viruses from ancient permafrost, it is possible that the even smaller, simpler mammalian viruses will also survive frozen for aeons, according to University of California virologist Eric Delwart.

Similar responses were made earlier on Twitter when the India lockdown started to trend as if another wave of Covid-19 had arrived over night. Thank goodness it hadn’t. A film titled India lockdown directed by director Madhur Bhandarkar is going to premiere on OTT. The #IndiaLockdown began to trend on Twitter after the movie’s teaser was unveiled.

monks at Buddhist temple

A Thailand official on Tuesday stated that a Buddhist monastery in central Thailand is now without monks after all of its holy men failed drug tests and were defrocked.

According to district administrator Boonlert Thintapthai of Phetchabun province, four monks, including an abbot, at a temple in the Bung Sam Phan district tested positive for methamphetamine on Monday.

According to the authority, the monks have been transferred to a medical facility for drug rehabilitation.

The monks have left the temple, and the local villagers are worried that they cannot perform any merit-making, he said. Worshipers might earn merit by giving food to monks as a good deed.

More monks will be dispatched to the temple, according to Boonlert, so that the locals can fulfil their religious duties. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime claims that Thailand is a significant transit country for the methamphetamine that enters the country via Laos from Myanmar’s unstable Shan state.

Pills can be purchased for less than 20 baht (about $0.50) on the street. In recent years, authorities in Southeast Asia have seized unprecedented amounts of meth.

Earlier in January 2022, a Buddhist monk was detained on suspicion of consuming and dispensing methamphetamine pills in a village in the Chaiyaphum region of northeastern Thailand.

According to authorities, the 40-year-old monk Phra Suthorn, who resided at a nearby monastery, had been peddling meth pills, also known as ya ba, or crazy medicine, to youths in the area.

After receiving numerous complaints from locals about the monk’s actions earlier this week, law enforcement officials decided to look into the matter.

Phra Suthorn refuted the allegations, but a later search of his residence turned up a plastic packet containing 36 methamphetamine pills hidden under his bed.

According to authorities, the monk then admitted to consuming and selling drugs, informing investigators that he had been doing both.
