    I did a case study a while back on who gets the blue checkmark. Leith and I have been researching the topic for 2 years now. This is some old data I have from 2 years ago, but it's a bunch of usernames of users who were given a blue checkmark before they even had 100 followers.

    No problem. You can really conduct a lot of research on these accounts. Some have lost their verification, which is equally interesting.
