Doja Cat begs Elon Musk to help her after she ‘made a mistake’ by changing her Twitter name to ‘christmas’
- Doja Cat begged Elon Musk for help after her Twitter display name got locked as “christmas.”
- She asked the platform’s new CEO for help after realizing verified users can’t change their names.
- “i don’t wanna be christmas forever @elonmusk please help i’ve made a mistake,” Doja Cat tweeted Thursday.
Doja Cat took to Twitter to beg the platform’s new CEO — Elon Musk — for help after she accidentally locked her display name as “christmas.”
“i don’t wanna be christmas forever @elonmusk please help i’ve made a mistake,” the pop star tweeted early Thursday morning.
Doja Cat appeared to change her display name on Twitter on October 31, the announcement accompanied by a “Merry Christmas” graphic posted to her feed.
Since Musk took over Twitter, he has been making rapid and inconsistent changes to the social media site’s verification program.
The system was previously used to verify authentic users who own accounts of public interest — like government officials, celebrities, and journalists. But now, Musk said anyone who pays $8 per month can get the blue check mark.
According to The Verge, users who were previously verified under Twitter’s legacy policy can no longer change their display names on the app, at least for now, to prevent impersonations.
“why can’t i change my name on here,” Doja Cat tweeted Thursday.
She followed up with another tweet: “how do i change it also fuck you elon”
Later Thursday, Musk responded to Doja Cat’s tweets, letting her know that she should now be able to change her name.
“You should be able to change your name now,” Musk tweeted.
Doja Cat still has not updated her Twitter name.
