One of the top social media platform Twitter has reopened the account verification process after 2017. Twitter had to suspend that program back in 2017 after harsh outrage over the verification of a white supremacist Jason Kessler who made the Charlottesville rally.
Kessler, who wasn’t a person of “public interest,” was presented the blue tick, and Twitter couldn’t grow up with a valid reason for it. Amid stiff criticism, CEO Jack Dorsey had to proceed out and openly declare that the verification system was broken and required work. That halted the program thus suspended the program continues until it.
Twitter has now stated that it will start to receive applications for the verification program under new guidelines and regulations.
Twitter had started collecting public feedback towards the rear end of last year to plan a new verification policy with a center on healthy conversations on the platform.
It appears that the feedback has been considered, which has prompted Twitter to reopen the program.
