A UFO expert has claimed that Twitter is refusing to verify him because he supports former US President Donald Trump.
Scott Waring, of UFO Sightings Daily, made the claim on the social media platform yesterday.
Mr Waring, who has 47.6k followers, tweeted: “Twitter is refusing to verify my account because I supported president Trump when he sent US military ships to protect us in Taiwan.
“And when he exited WHO because of communist China and Ethiopia controls it, not allowing Taiwan to enter.
“I will always support Taiwan.”
Oddly, his only response to the tweet is someone telling him to “think bigger”, while tagging in the Nobel Peace Prize account.
There is no way to know if Mr Waring's claim is true or not, as Twitter doesn't give a reason for rejection when using its application process for verification.
The process itself allows you to choose what industry you're part of, before asking for identification – passport, household bill etc – and then it requests three links to prove you are who you say you are.
Mr Waring's UFO Sightings Daily website is no longer online, which could explain why he was not verified.
There are also much larger accounts with more followers that are without verification on the platform, too.
Crypto expert Layah Heilpern has 185.5k, while author and writer Sara Gibbs has 54.4k – both of whom have been denied verification status by the platform recently.
Earlier this month, Mr Waring claims he spotted a giant UFO “several times bigger” than the International Space Station.
He claimed that it was “100 per cent proof” of aliens, and shared a picture of it on his now-offline website, dismissing any and all suggestions that it was a photo of the moon.
He said: “It's not the moon. The moon is 5X bigger and bright.
“This object is much smaller, oval in shape and has some unique red/green colours to it.”
