Well, it finally happened: I have a VERIFIED Twitter account with a magical blue check mark. What does this really mean? I’m not completely sure…other than it will prevent me from whining about not having one.
For reference, here’s me discussing the fact my brother had a fancy blue check and I didn’t: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMqnsrjYA6Q
And here’s me discussing the verification process with Ashok & Anil Dash: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQlY2wbZsjk
THE KONDABOLU BROTHERS ARE EQUALS ONCE AGAIN.

Watch this! From our last live show in New York City!
How do you get a verified account on Twitter with a magic blue check…and how come Hari doesn’t have one? Ashok and I sat down with our friend, blogger and technologist Anil Dash, who broke down the process at our “Untitled Kondabolu Brothers Project” show in NYC on March 15th, 2013.
Ashok has a verified Twitter account (one with a blue check) and Hari DOES NOT. This is a source of tension.

At the end of “Untitled Kondabolu Brothers Podcast” Episode 5, we requested a photoshopped picture be sent to us of the Jackson 5 with young Michael’s head replaced with the head of Michael at the end of his life. We also asked the file to be labeled “An American Tragedy” and for our names to be in the picture somehow. Fan Brandon Detherage DELIVERED. http://www.kondabolubrothers.com
