It's complicated. A little blue check mark can say so much, but that's part of the problem, stated Director of Product Management David Gasca, who is leading a team to rework their verification system. Twitter's policy states the company will revoke verified status of people "Promoting hate and/or violence against, or directly attacking or threatening other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease", or "supporting organizations or individuals that promote the above".
Although Twitter didn't specifically mention what "facts" will be needed for their updated verification system, it's likely the company will require things such as other social profiles, drivers licenses, telephone numbers and more. "But in user research, users think of it as credibility, [that] Twitter stands behind this person and what they're saying is great and authentic, which is not what we meant".
The intention is to open verification to everyone.
Twitter is now looking to verify people, as well as exactly what the verification means. It was suspended last fall after the social media service came under fire for verifying white supremacist Jason Kessler.

"One of the things we'd like to see and enable a lot more of on our platform is exactly that", Dorsey said.
While Twitter expanding its verification process to include everyone would potentially solve the issue of conflating identity with credibility, it could also potentially harm Twitter's use for anonymous users.
Now you can feel special too: Twitter is looking to open up its verification process to regular folk. The company, along with Facebook and Google, has also pledged to disclose more information about the political ads that run on its platform. It could involve users handing over government ID, for instance.
Currently, anyone who wants to get the verified badge, is required to put in a request to Twitter along with filling out necessary details in the request form such as the verified phone number and make a case as to why you should get the blue tick. Let us know in the comments.
