After stopping the process last week, Twitter stated on Wednesday that it has started receiving user requests for profile verification. After a more than four-year hiatus, the verification application procedure was reopened on May 20. However, nearly a week after it was restarted, the micro blogging site suspended the operation. While the application process for validating profiles was put on hold, Twitter pledged to restart it soon. It did not, however, disclose any specific dates for when it will begin accepting verification applications again.
Twitter confirmed in a follow-up tweet to its earlier announcement that it had started accepting verification requests from users. After a four-day hiatus, the show has resumed.
The firm, which is based in San Francisco, California, did not give any information on why the procedure was halted last week or if consumers would see any changes in response times once it was resumed. When Gadgets 360 contacted Twitter for comment on these findings, the company declined.
Last month, when Twitter relaunched its verification application process, it stated that it would reply to user requests for verification in “a few days” to “weeks.” If the application is granted, customers will receive a blue label on their profile, according to the business. Otherwise, it gave applicants 30 days to reapply after receiving Twitter’s decision.
Government, corporations, brands, and organizations; news organizations and journalists; entertainment; sports and gaming; activists, organizers, and other significant persons are the only six categories for whom Twitter has opened the verification window. Nonetheless, it hinted at future intentions to add other categories to the list.
