There's a rumor floating around the Internet that says if you change your Twitter profile to a birthdate of 2007, which is the year Twitter launched, you’ll be able to unlock a new color scheme, get admin privileges on the platform, get cash, or even get yourself a coveted blue verified check mark! There’s just one problem: doing so will actually get you booted from Twitter. You see in order to have a Twitter account, you need to be at least 13 years old. If you were born in 2007, then you would only be 12, a year too young to be allowed an account. The prank has gotten so widespread that this week Twitter Support actually released a warning telling people not to do it. If you did fall victim to the stunt, all is not lost. Twitter says that you can get your account reinstated by contacting Twitter Support and uploading a photo of your government-issued ID.
