Twitter to revoke verification for some accounts as part of overhaul

Twitter says that it’s producing progress on its plan to evaluation its authentication system, which it’s conducting in the wake of repercussion against the social network verifying the accounts of a white supremacist rally coordinator. In a series of tweets today, the particular Twitter Support account acknowledges that will verification comes across as endorsement, which the social network’s treatment of confirmation has led to this. As a result, it’s going to change how it goodies verification of accounts, and will unverify some users “whose behavior does not fall within” its brand new guidelines.

The Twitter Support account begins having an admission that providing “visual prominence” in order to verified accounts has contributed towards the perception that it’s an validation by the network of those specific customers, and that it should have taken action previously to clear up any confusion in this regard. It also says that opening up the verification process to public submission further exacerbated this issue.

Now, it says it’s reworking the entire system, and has already changed its official guidelines on what verification means, and it’s still not accepting any submissions for verification from the general public.

The biggest news here is likely that the company will take action to eliminate existing verification for accounts where their activity doesn’t meet its restated guidelines. It’s unclear who’ll be affected and when, but there’s bound to be some attention provided to it should any highly visible users become unverified as a result of this evaluation.
