When Chip told his fans he would be changing his name we’re pretty sure he thought that it would be the only thing changing, after all it’s unlikely a name change would lose him any fans. But it seems Chip was wrong and in the process of changing his Twitter name, lost his verified tick.

Yes, it may not seem like a big deal to you non-celebs reading this, but being verified can open a lot of doors for you in the Twitsphere. Chipmunk, sorry Chip assured his followers that he would get his blue tick back soon so there’s no need to start a charity for him just yet.

Though we think as punishment for naming himself after deep-fried strips of potato, Twitter should hang onto that tick for a while.
