Twitter gives fake Disney account verified status

The account, called @DisneyJuniorUK, was tweeting vile content, but managed to be verified with a gold tick before being suspended.

The owner alerted his followers by saying "this isn't actually real right. someone pinch me or something" - and the tweet has since gone viral.

It comes as confusion continues at how Twitter's updated verification system is working.

Twitter has been approached for comment.

Meanwhile, the "real" Disney Junior account has also been given a gold badge.
