Account Verification is coming back on Twitter, find out who will get the Blue Badge

If you’re a Twitter user, you’ve probably noticed the blue tick mark on many accounts. This mark appears on Twitter’s verified accounts. But in 2016, Twitter stopped account verification anew. However, on Tuesday they announced to bring back this verification. According to Twitter, the public verification process for the Blue Badge will start from the beginning of 2021. They will also announce a new public application system. Twitter authorities are also seeking public opinion on the new verification policy.

Why was the account verification closed?

Before 2016, anyone could apply for Twitter account verification. As a result, many people started applying for verification without any reason. Having a blue tick next to the name became a fashion statement. As a result, Twitter decided to temporarily shut down the account verification service. However, the Twitter accounts of the candidates were recently verified before the polls in the United States. But the public could not apply for verification.

The importance of verification

Authorities were not clear on what Twitter account verification meant, who would be verified, who would not. They took so much time for all those thoughts. They recently identified six different types of accounts for verification. These are-
1. Government
2. Companies, brands and non-profit organizations
3. News
4. Entertainment
5. Organizer of sports and other activities
. Other influential personalities

According to the proposed policy, “The Blue Verified Badge on Twitter helps people know that the account is appropriate for the public interest. Your account needs to be significant and active in order to receive the Blue Badge. ” According to Twitter, there are many verified accounts on their platform that are not supposed to be verified. From 2021, they will remove Blue Tick from these inactive or incomplete profiled accounts. This will allow more accounts to be added to the new six sections. Twitter also plans to add more sections later.

Ways to give feedback on verification policy

Twitter has sought public opinion on their verification policy. The deadline for comment is November 24 to December 6. Users can express their views by simply tweeting. Use the hashtag #VerificationFeedback for this.

The draft of the relevant verification policy is available in English, Hindi, Arabic, Japanese, Spanish, Portuguese etc. Users can read this draft and give their opinion. The final policy will be announced on December 16 after receiving user feedback.
