Social media giant named Twitter works on blue tick verification process for all users on the platform who can prove their identity. The micro-blogging site is working on a new process to verify people’s identity and, thus, ensure credibility. Despite its original function of authenticating accounts, the much-coveted blue check mark has grown to become a status symbol.
As per the CNET report, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said that the company plans to offer its blue-check-mark verification badge to more of its users, an oft-requested feature.
“Company is working on a new process to verify people’s identity and ensure credibility.”
“We want to be one of the most trusted services in the world, and we know we have a lot of work to get there.”
In last November, blue tick verifications were stopped for all new applicants. The company said the tick mark was being used as an endorsement instead of a sign of authenticity of identity. The move had come after people criticised Twitter for verifying the account belonging to the organiser of the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left one dead in August.
