Edition The Verge said that in the coming weeks twitter simplifies the process of user verification. An account for verification and confirmation of the account can be submitted directly in the account settings. True, there must be grounds for this.
The covenant verification icon can receive accounts related to the following categories:
- Government officials;
- Companies and brands;
- News publications and journalists;
- Representatives of creative professions;
- Activists, public organizations and famous personalities.
Also, the account must be genuine and active. Consideration of the application and the issuance of confirmation may take several weeks. It all depends on the total number of requests, because the Twitter moderators will consider them in turn.
If suddenly the application was not approved, then users have the right for 30 days from the date of receipt to file an appeal to re-confirmation.
It is worth noting that in 2017 the company suspended the verification process for a wide audience, preferred selectively, mainly well-known persons. The fact is that Twitter was caught in the issuance of the corresponding account of the account, the owner of which was a racist. At the same time, those who already have the corresponding icon in the profile will not lose it.
