According to the verge, a foreign media report,Twitter's revision verification policy will be launched on January 20, 2021Before that, twitter had pressed the pause button on the official application process for more than three years. After twitter confirmed in November that it would restart verification next year, the new policy was refined in the feedback of tens of thousands of users.

A twitter spokesman told the verge that the application would open at some point "early 2021.". But January 20 was the time the new policy took effect and the company said it would begin removing the verification badge from inactive accounts and accounts that did not meet its new requirements.

Some of the new changes in its authentication policy include looser profile information requirements to qualify for authentication, more refined and defined authentication badge categories, and new guidelines around when an account may lose its blue check mark if it is inactive or if it is found to be in violation of Twitter's policy.

The new category will include government officials - which have been verifying each one since twitter suspended the official process - as well as companies, brands and non-profit organizations. It will also include media institutions and journalists, entertainers and organizations, sports related accounts, and a broad category of "activists, organizers and other influential individuals". Twitter said it was open to expanding its list of categories over time.


Sometime next year, twitter plans to introduce a way to tag accounts that automatically or once belonged to a deceased person. "We are not going to automatically remove the verification badge from the inactive accounts of deceased people, we are working to establish a way to commemorate these accounts in 2021," wrote Twitter's blog post.

"It will also be accompanied by an updated recall policy and a new application process to request a recall account," Twitter said At the same time, automatic accounts will at some point in the future be distinguished from human operated accounts, "making it easier for people to know what robots are and what are not." Twitter has yet to reveal what the tags look like or how it will take the initiative to implement the tagging requirements for zombie accounts.

For artificially operated accounts, the company said there was no risk of losing the existing badge as long as the account holder changed before January 20 to make the account meet its new verification requirements. These requirements include ensuring that the account has a verified email address or phone number, profile picture and display name. The company also plans to inform individuals at risk of losing their badges what they need to change to keep it before taking action.

Twitter reserves the right to cancel verification. "According to our policy, we may also delete the verification of accounts that are found to have seriously or repeatedly violated twitter rules. We will continue to evaluate these accounts on a case by case basis and will improve the relationship between our rule enforcement and validation in 2021. " Twitter continued in a blog post. "As always, everyone on Twitter is subject to twitter rules, and you can read more about the scope of our enforcement action here."

For users who want to apply for authentication, twitter will launch a new "self-service application process" in the app at some time in early 2021, allowing applicants to select a category for verification and confirm their identity. Twitter said it would use manual reviews and automated systems to get involved in applications.
