    The DMC Digital Media Center confirmed the occurrence of a digital chaos on the Twitter platform, after opening the authentication of accounts for a certain amount of money.

    The center stated, in a statement received by the Iraqi News Agency (INA), that "a digital chaos occurred on the Twitter platform, after the new "controversial" owner of the company, Elon Musk, decided to authenticate the accounts for a certain amount of money.

    The center pointed out that the "authentication service" with the advantages of modifying the tweet and under the name Twitter Blue, is carried out without human review, which allowed the authentication of dozens of fake accounts of political and media figures as well as major companies, some of which Twitter began to suspend in order to stop this chaos.

    He added, "This feature will also allow accounts that incite hatred and terrorism to authenticate their accounts and enjoy the new features."
    He stressed that "Elon Musk's success in his major companies "Tesla, SpaceX and others" does not mean that he will also succeed in managing Twitter, especially with a big difference between these companies.".

    The center advised the Twitter platform to "raise the authentication feature in exchange for paying money and maintain other features that include modifying the tweet and the lack of advertising access, or to impose conditions that prove the identity of those who request to participate in this service."
