Twitter Blue Tick Verification Starts in 2021 

Twitter is planning to reopen its blue tick verification system in early 2021, after three years. Twitter’s blue checkmark application process was paused in 2017 due to a flawed process, which ended up being a confused state because of different ways that Twitter employees applied the qualifiers, and who should be approved and not, etc.

So now they will begin the fresh process of getting public feedback on the new policy to implement twitter account verification. Twitter users, brands, and businesses are super happy because they will get a chance to own an official blue checkmark, which will surely increase the twitter followers count and also value of their profile. 

Twitter said it will improve how people can easily identify themselves on this microblogging platform, starting with verification and asking the public to share feedback on a draft of its new verification policy, Twitter said in a blog post on Tuesday, Nov 24th, and feedback survey process will be closed on 8th, Dec 2020. 

This approach will establish the framework for future enhancements by characterizing what check implies, who is qualified for confirmation, and why a few records may lose confirmation to guarantee that the cycle is more impartial. 

Notable Twitter Accounts for Verification

Twitter will initially verify these six types of accounts, including 

  1. Government officials profiles
  2. Companies, Brands, and nonprofit organizations 
  3. News
  4. Entertainment
  5. Sports
  6. Activists, organizers, and Influencers.

Twitter will also plan to increase the number of categories for the eligibility verification process in the future. They also included certain criteria to automatically disapprove twitter verification from an account if the applied user profile inactive or incomplete, as well as if they are found to be in repeated violation of its rules.

If your profile is previously verified and you’re inactive for more than 6 months and do not fully complete your profile’s information, the new system will automatically remove badges from accounts.

From 2021, the company announced work on the verification system would be placed on a longer, more indefinite hold, so Twitter could direct its employees to focus on the US election morality that proved they are working in this process. Though the company this year verified medical experts tweeting about COVID-19 and labeled candidates running for public office, these efforts were managed in more of a one-off fashion. Finally, the 2020 U.S. presidential election also wrapped, and with a transition underway, Twitter says work on its new verification form system will finally resume.
