For the first time since 2017, Twitter began accepting verification requests last week. For the time being, Twitter is putting new applications on hold while it reviews its current profile stack. It appears that Twitter has received more applications than expected.

Twitter announced:

The verification process will be reopened soon, according to the statement. Twitter reopened public applications last week after a three-year hiatus. People interpreted the verified status as an indicator of importance or endorsement, so it stopped taking verification requests in November 2017.

The new verification program clarifies who is eligible for verification. The blue badge will be awarded to accounts that are “authentic, notable, and active,” according to Twitter. To be verified, the accounts must also meet one of the six criteria listed below:

  • Companies, brands and organizations
  • News organizations and journalists
  • Government
  • Activists, organizers, and other influential individuals
  • Sports and gaming
  • Entertainment

Users must also have a complete account, which includes a profile name, an image, and a verified email address or phone number. These Twitter accounts must also have been active in the previous six months and “have a record of adherence to the Twitter Rules.”
