Will Twitter Resume Process for 'Authenticated Badge' Grant?

A ' verified account ' that Twitter has officially verified that the celebrity's account is genuine has a blue, verified badge next to the account name, indicating that it has been verified. The official Twitter authentication process had been suspended since November 2017, but it has been reported that it may resume soon.

'I'm neither a Twitter employee nor technical support,' said reverse engineer Jane Manchun Wong, who opened an 'account' from 'Settings' on Twitter and found that 'Personal information' I am reporting that the item 'Request verification' had appeared in the column. This 'request' is a request for account verification, which suggests that the official verification process that had been suspended may resume.

The official authentication process was canceled in November 2017, and the Twitter account of the user who professed to be white supreme was given a blue badge indicating that it was an authenticated account. It was triggered by a big discussion. Twitter suspended the official account verification process, saying it would 'review the official verification criteria.' Announced that we will also stop accepting new authentication badge requests.

In March 2018, Twitter's CEO Jack Dorsey said, 'We are considering a policy that all users will be subject to the official authentication process.'

Meanwhile, Twitter product leader Kayvon Beykpour said, ``The verification of the official certification process has a low priority and we are busy preparing for the mid-term elections in November 2018''. It will be revealed on Twitter in July.

However, at the beginning of 2020, he stated that he was reviving the official certification process in a limited way in order to certify tweets related to the new coronavirus (COVID-19) by public health accounts.

According to IT news media The Verge, Twitter confirmed that he confirmed Mr. Wong's tweet, but declined to comment further. At the time of writing the article, the Twitter help page clearly states that 'We are not accepting new requests at this time', and it is unknown when Twitter will resume the official authentication process.
