Twitter pauses its verification program after assigning the blue tag to multiple fake accounts

Twitter interrupted again your verification program requests, explaining that you need to work on the process that allows people to receive the blue mark.

This change comes after Twitter admitted that itSeveral fake accounts, apparently part of a botnet, were incorrectly verified.

If you have recently requested verification, there is a possibility that you will get it: Twitter Verified said it will continue to review existing apps, so the freeze just prevents new people from signing up.

Twitter has not indicated that it will make changes to the criteria it uses to consider accounts as verifiable or not.

This isn’t the first time Twitter has put its verification program on hold: in 2017, he suspended the process after receiving negative reactions when checking one of the organizers of the Unite The Right rally in Charlottesville. In 2021, it re-released a revamped version and, a week later, put it on hiatus due to a barrage of requests.

The problems Twitter has had with its verification program highlight the difficulties that may be involved in awarding the badge.

Twitter says that the purpose of the badge is to show that an account is “authentic, remarkable and active”, But even these criteria can end up generating controversy when applications from potentially notable people are rejected.
