    Here's The Hilarious And Mildly Depressing Saga Happening Between Doja Cat And Twitter

    "I don't wanna be Christmas forever, Elon Musk help I've made a mistake."

    Unless you're safely far away from the swirling vortex of chaos happening on Twitter right now (in which case, teach me your ways), you may have noticed a lot of Elon Musk-induced nonsense happening over verified accounts.

    For a hot minute, following the rollout of "Twitter Blue" this week, verified folks were unable to change their display names. According to Twitter, this was to "minimize impersonation risks," which, I'm not saying was a response to a bunch of people paying for a blue tick and then impersonating Elon Musk, but sure feels like a response to a bunch of people paying for a blue tick and then impersonating Elon Musk.

    Well, one of the people caught in the crossfire was none other than Doja Cat — whose name was "Christmas" at the time:

    doja's name listed as christmas with her tweet reading, why can't i change my name on here

    Ahh, a tweet for the times:

    "how do i change it also fuck you elon"

    "I don't wanna be Christmas forever" (Doja Cat, 2022).

    "i dont wanna be christmas forever, elon, please help i've made a mistake

    Thankfully, the ghoul himself took the time to respond to Doja personally:

    Twitter: @elonmusk

    Meaning that her Twitter name could be restored to what the universe intended:

    doja's name changed to fart

    Although there are some screenshots floating around suggesting that there was a brief alternate name for Doja before "fart":

    doja first changing her name to elon musk

    As for what's going on with the Twitter verification process right now, I'm fairly sure nobody knows.
