Getting Verified On Twitter Will Soon Be An Easy Process

If any you guys wanted to make your Twitter account ficial the social media platform is looking to make the process easier for you. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey spoke about the process during a Periscope Livestream noting how the company plans to make any user become verified. 

“The intention is to open verification to everyone,” Jack said, The Verge reports. “And to do it in a way that’s scalable, where Twitter] is not in the way and people can verify more facts about themselves and we don’t have to be the judge or imply any bias on our part.”

The exact ways Twitter plan to do this was not disclosed, but looking at other platforms such as Airbnb and how users must submit a government-issued photo, Facebook prile, and phone number, it may be what Twitter is looking to also do. 

“The main problem is, we use the checkmark] to mean identity,” Twitter director product David Gasca said. “But in user research … users think it as credibility, that] Twitter stands behind this person and what they’re saying is great and authentic, which is not what we meant.” 

Without a doubt, this could cause some major confusion to be had if the process to be verified becomes too easy. Just recently we posted on Kim Kardashian “making calls” to get an unficial, yet verified, Yeezy account to loose the blue checkmark.
