What does the lightning bolt mean?

@gary Checkmark is probably just people manually adding that to their names to look like they're "verified".

The lightning bolt is just a common thing for Lightning Network supporters.

@duudl3 Thanks. I did not realize they were adding those themselves.

@duudl3 @gary people add check marks on mastodon as a joke about the KYC bs on Twitter 😅

@duudl3 @gary My unconfirmed understanding is that the checkmark can be used to indicate which account is your currently active one.
