Blue Checkmark Scam

So how come some social media accounts get the blue checkmark straight away? Even without posting?

Angel City soccer club which was announced the other day had a blue checkmark from its very first Tweet.  The soccer club is designed to raise the platform of women because of their identity.

And then Brie Larson got her YouTube account approved and monetised before she even uploaded a video.  Completely unheard of for YouTube.


Conveniently Larson was talking about race relations following racial protests across America instead of feminism whilst promoting a Captain Marvel movie based on feminism.

Maybe the blue checkmark system is now just a scam.
