Just one week after relaunching the program, Twitter announced that it is no longer accepting applications for verification. The company promises to reopen requests soon.
Twitter officially relaunched its verification program last week after a multi-year hiatus. The new program allows users to apply for verification via their profile, with Twitter outlining six different categories of users eligible for verification.
- Companies, brands, and organizations
- News organizations and journalists
- Sports and gaming
- Activists, organizers, and other influential individuals
Twitter is focusing on three main goals with its new verification program. Transparency, credibility, and clarity. The social network says that in order to be verified, the user needs to be notable, authentic, and active.
But it seems Twitter wasn’t quite prepared for the volume of verification requests it ended up receiving. As such, the company is temporarily pausing the program while it plays catchup.
