It’s worth noting that the way the terrorist attacks on Israel are being covered and viewed today, and likely the international response to what is happening, would be significantly different if Elon Musk had not bought Twitter.

Blue checks get their tweets positioned first under a tweet when they reply to something, what they’re tweeting about gets greater weight in determining trends, and their tweets are positioned first in trending topics.
The pre-Musk blue-checks were granted to accounts deemed notable by progressive Twitter staff, and they were overwhelmingly given to progressive figures in media, politics and activism.
