Listen to the news
On Thursday, the company said that it has started automatically removing blue ticks from accounts that do not meet the new verification criteria.
Twitter said in a blog, ‘We are happy to inform that from today we will start our new verification application process and review people’s applications for verification on Twitter. This is a starting point for our plan to give more transparency, credibility and clarity to verification on Twitter.
The company said that blue ticks will be removed from verified accounts that repeatedly violate Twitter rules. Blue Tick is one of the ways in which Twitter helps people determine the credibility of more public interest accounts. Users get more context on who they are interacting with.
