Twitter will eventually reopen its verification process so that users can register and get their own verification buttons. This has been considered and expected for many years. In the end, when the test program restarted, obviously we got official confirmation from the developer. This has been announced since 2020, and it has proved difficult to obtain an exact timetable. The user initially wanted the program to start in early 2021, but then the date was changed indefinitely. Today, Twitter published a blog post on its platform, saying that the show starts today! However, even this news may not surprise everyone.
Researcher Jane Manchun Wong previously shared screenshots of the registration process and expects the process to begin next week. Well, with people’s increasing attention to the elite awareness of celebrities, “verified shows” came in the back row last time. For those annoying users, the “confirm” button is only attached to influential people and celebrities, rather than the fact that real experts from all walks of life are wrong. They complain that this has also led to an unfair trend on the Internet, where the opinions of verified users are more reliable, even if they do not have relevant comments to support them.
In the end, Twitter made a concession and decided to return to the updated selection process. We saw it today. First, an account must fall into one of the six categories below to be classified as auditable. The six categories are government; companies and brands; news organizations and journalists; entertainment; sports and games; and finally, activists, organizers, and other influencers. This is a very comprehensive start of the program, and you may see more supplementary content in the future.
Users can request confirmation from the “Account Settings” tab, even for normal applications. Don’t worry, they will be there in a few weeks. Applications are scored by people and answered within a few days after submission. However, in some more complicated cases, the timetable can be extended to about a week. If your application is accepted-great, now you have a blue mark! Otherwise, you can wait 30 days and then apply again.
