With so many profiles on Twitter, with some even impersonating public figures, a blue badge is a great way to help distinguish the authenticity of accounts, especially those in the public eye.

In order for a person to receive a blue badge, they are able to request for verification if they fit in Twitter’s categories such as media, entertainment, sports or government.

Uncles Waffles’s viral video of her dancing to chart-topping amapiano song “Adiwele” by Young Stunna and Kabza De Small made her the talk of the town.

The video has been highly viewed, it is currently sitting on 4.2 million views on Twitter and one of those views is from international rapper, Drake himself.
