Twitter verification is starting today, the process of giving verified blue ticks was closed for three years, apply this way
Twitter is going to start its verification process from today. This process was stopped for about three years. Now after the verification process starts again, many more accounts will get the blue tick mark. The company said that it is relaunching the self-service application, so that people can apply for verification.
The micro-blogging platform halted the verification process from 16 November 2017. Citing the reason for the closure, Twitter had said that the blue tick was being seen as an endorsement and was experiencing difficulty in perception. Now three years later Twitter is back with a new verification system. Let us know how to apply for this.
According to Twitter, an account needs to be notable and active in order to be verified. There are 6 types of notable accounts on Twitter: – Government – companies, brands or non-profit organizations – News organizations and journalists – Entertainment – Sports and e-sports – Activists, organizers and other personal influencers.
Twitter has said that it has received recommendations to add many more new categories. These include academics, scientists and other religious leaders. So the company may add a dedicated category for them sometime later this year. But till then, if you fall in these categories, then you can qualify in the Activist, Organizers and Other Personal Influencers category.
Blue ticks can be removed from these accounts, then the user’s blue badge can be removed. If the user changes their account name or is incomplete or inactive. Or the user is not currently in the position for which he was given a blue badge. For example, any officer who has left that post. The company has stated that the blue verified badge and verified status can be removed without notice. Also, violations of Twitter rules will also be removed from the blue badge account.
Apply for verification this way: The company has said that it is going to resume self-service application portal soon. This will enable people to apply for verification. In this process, users have to select a category for their verified status and confirm it through their identity link and other supporting material.
