Twitter to provide context on failed verification requests
TwitterTwitter has announced that it will now begin to offer context on failed verification requests, making it easier for applicants to understand why their verification request was denied.
In a Tweet on Friday, Twitter said “We’ve heard your feedback that we can be more clear on why an application didn’t get approved. Decision emails will now give more context on why requests don’t meet our criteria.”
Twitter reopened its public verification program in May, giving users the ability to submit a request to be verified and show the highly sought-after blue checkmark badge on their profile.
Twitter is currently only accepting requests from notable that belong to government officials; companies, brands and nonprofit organizations; news; entertainment; sports; and activists, organizers and other influential individuals.
