Twitter reopens verification requests, after short hiatus
After suspending verification requests for a few days, Twitter ad they’re open again, in case you want to be verified.
The company before stopped the process due to the high volume of pending applications. “We are rolling in requests for verification. So we need to take a break to accept more for now as we go through the ones that have been submitted. Twitter noted in its ad.
Twitter verification was turned off for years, and only some notable accounts could earn this blue badge through direct contact with the company. Twitter again open its doors for public verifications on May 20.
Of course, it’s predictable that Twitter will receive a slew of verification requests again, and they may stop accepting requests for days to assess pending requests. Verification has been disabled for a long time, and now many accounts think they deserve a blue badge.
Twitter verification is open, but it’s not for everyone
Just because Twitter lets you send your verification requests doesn’t mean that you can be verified. Only notable accounts and famous public figures can receive the verification badge in the new process. So the others don’t stand a chance, or at least have a small chance.
In addition, Twitter has defined specific categories, and any account requesting verification must belong to one of these categories. Entertainment activists, activists or influencers, brands, government or affiliate officials, professional sports or esports entities, and journalists or news organizations can submit their applications to Twitter.
Of course, falling into any of these categories does not guarantee account verification. You must be a notable person in your industry to be verified.
In addition, the government issued ID is not the only document supported to verify your identity and background. You can use official email addresses or official websites. It is a good alternative for public servants and those who work in sensitive organizations.
Either way, Twitter is once again open to accepting verification requests. If you think your account is eligible for a Blue Badge, please feel free to submit your application on Twitter.
