Twitter pauses new account verification program after just over a week of relaunching it
Twitter has paused its new account verification program after just over a week of relaunching it, the reason being it received more requests than it anticipated, and now the micro-blogging platform needs time to review those before it can accept any new requests.
Twitter doesn't tell us when exactly it will start accepting new requests, but it promises to "reopen requests soon".
We’re rolling in verification requests. So we gotta hit pause on accepting any more for now while we review the ones that have been submitted.— Twitter Verified (@verified) May 28, 2021
We’ll reopen requests soon! (we pinky swear)
Twitter relaunched its account verification program after a hiatus of more than three years. It was paused in November 2017, citing user confusion about the program as the reason, and Twitter promised to bring it back with improvements.
The new verification program now offers more clarity about who can get verified. Twitter says it will give the blue badge to accounts that are "authentic, notable, and active". The accounts must also fit one of the six criteria listed below to get verified:
- Companies, brands and organizations
- News organizations and journalists
- Sports and gaming
- Activists, organizers, and other influential individuals
