Don’t change your Twitter birthday to 2007 unless you want to get kicked off for being under 13

A viral joke that tries to get people to change their Twitter birthdays to 2007 is to make users out of the platform because they are under 13 years old. Prank tweets tell users that changing Twitter birthdays in their profiles do everything necessary to unlock new color schemes, get administrator privileges, or even verified verification. It hurts a lot to have to make a good joke, but this will not really happen.

It has become such a big problem that Twitter Support has issued a public service announcement that alerts users to the joke.

Those unlucky ones who have fallen for the joke can contact Twitter Support and get their accounts. back loading a copy of your ID issued by the government.

On a completely unrelated note, changing your Twitter birthday to 2008 will allow you to edit your tweets, so you should fully try it now.
