Last year, Twitter planned to relaunch its verification program in January 2021, which did not happen. It is now reported that the social network plans to finally submit its new confirmation request form next week.
Researcher Jane Manchum Wong said on Twitter that “many sources” had told her that the social network was ready to launch its long-awaited new verification program as soon as next week.
In May, Wong shared more details about how the verification request form will work and which type of accounts will qualify for the blue badge.
Following controversies in US national policy and other topics, Twitter decided to label various verified users as other people on the social network to find out if the account represents the government, a politician, a content creator or a journalist, for example. So far, only government accounts have a different label.
With the form shared by Wong, here̵
- Twitter will ask if your account belongs to an activist, company, entertainment group, government official, journalist or professional sports entity;
- You will need to share your ID with the social network
- Display your account qualification via Google Trends, Wikipedia article, news coverage, or official leadership website
- Upload a photo of your ID
- Give Twitter some information about who you are and they will verify your account.
According to Wong, “in the upcoming Twitter confirmation form, the valid account type and qualifications are almost in line with their guidelines,” which you can find here.
If Twitter does launch its new verification program next week, it will be another step for the company to continue to improve and provide more features to the platform. The social network recently launched its Spaces feature and announced the Tip Jar feature to help creators generate revenue on the platform.
Twitter also plans to launch a subscription level, which was supported by the acquisition of other startups.
