The BBC has protested the new designation, describing it as “state-funded media” on one of its main Twitter accounts.

The BBC says it is talking to the social media giant about hashing the @BBC account to “resolve this issue as soon as possible”.

It issued a statement: “The BBC is and always will be independent. We get our funding from the British public through license fees.”

Twitter has been contacted for comment.
