A list of things can make one lose his or her verification badge - Isreal Chukwuebuka

In an exclusive chat with Isreal Chukwuebuka used Cuppy's case to discuss why someone might lose their verification badge on Twitter.

He said:

"Many things can make one lose his or her verification badge, things as spamming or the use of blacklisted words but "Change of name" is the most common reason for that.
"However, the verification badge automatically returned within 72 hours after the name change.
"That's likely the case then. If it was removed because of spamming or the use of blacklisted words, it would have taken a longer time to get the badge back."
