    Here Are The Funniest Tweets About Verified Accounts Temporarily Not Being Able To Tweet

    Time for unverified Twitter to shine!

    If you've been on Twitter recently, you've most likely noticed that verified accounts were unable to tweet for a couple of hours.

    That's due to many high-profile accounts โ€” including those of Barack Obama, Bill Gates, Joe Biden, Elon Musk, Apple, and Uber โ€” being hacked. To take proper precautions, Twitter temporarily blocked verified accounts from tweeting; they could only like and retweet tweets from other accounts.

    Those who aren't verified were absolutely having a field day with this and wrote hilarious tweets about the situation. Here are the funniest tweets about verified accounts temporarily losing their power to tweet:
