The social network Twitter has begun returning verification badges to some accounts, without their owners having subscribed to its new plan.

Some Twitter accounts with more than a million followers have recovered their blue badge, without having to pay a penny.

The American singer Beyoncé, the captain of the English soccer team Harry Kane, the British television presenter and producer Richard Osman and the former Spice Girl, Victoria Beckham, are some of those who have recovered the badge that certifies that their accounts on the network social really belong to them.

The BBC Twitter account also has its badge back and has not paid for it.

Before the social network was bought by Elon Musk, the blue badge was an identity verification badge that Twitter gave freely.
