On Tuesday, Twitter announced that it reopened verification applications after disabling them last week. On May 20, however, verification applications were formally relaunched, and a pause came about eight days later on Friday.
It said it would respond “within a few days” when it opened verification applications again in May, but warned that it could take “a few weeks” depending on the number of applications Twitter received.
You are not sure whether you should expect the same timeframe for a response after the pause and reopening.
A request for comment was not immediately responded to by Twitter.
Twitter‘s new verification program allows anyone to apply to receive a blue checkmark that indicates that they are a verified user.
According to Twitter, only six categories of accounts are actually eligible for verification: government, companies, brands, and organizations, news organizations and journalists, entertainment, sports, and games, as well as activists, organizers, and other influential individuals.
