Twitter Will Now Strip Verification Status From Accounts Deemed to Spread 'Hate'

Users gifted with the blue badge are usually perceived as legitimate accounts, meaning Twitter has contacted or confirmed the identity of the account holder, but some badges are reserved for high-profile accounts, such as the president's, which ostensibly enables certain features non-badge holders aren't entitled to.

"Typically this includes accounts maintained by users in music, acting, fashion, government, politics, religion, journalism, media, sports, business and other key interest areas", Twitter explains on its website.

Twitter said its badge on accounts was being misinterpreted as an indicator of importance or endorsement, and said the idea behind the badge would change. "We will continue to review and take action as we work towards a new program we are proud of".

Further, the makers stated that a new verification procedure was being laid down in order to curb the hue and cry around the same.

Twitter also stated that it was no longer accepting public submissions.

Harassment, promoting or threatening physical violence, and sharing violent imagery were also included in the list of unacceptable behaviours.

The new scheme will remove verification from anyone who "promotes hate" on grounds including "race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease".

Jason Kessler, a far-right figure who organised a rally in Charlottesville in whichcounter-protester Heather Heyer was killed, also lost the Twitter verification. "Hey @jack: very active user, 2.1M followers here: this is disgusting", Black said, adding that verifying the account of Kessler means that Twitter is becoming a platform for hate speech.

More tweets reveal that Twitter will be removing any verification from accounts "whose behavior does not fall within" the platform's guidelines.

Quickly after this announcement, the verified status started disappearing from a number of white supremacists accounts and the controversial Baked Alaska's account was even suspended.

After facing widespread criticism for verifying a man who was literally run out of town for the harm his rally of intolerance caused, Twitter halted all new verifications, and is now claiming to be working on establishing rules which may remove verification on currently verified accounts. The company revealed news about some new guidelines for verified accounts and wants all its verified accounts to follow these guidelines strictly.

Accounts that are not verified can still post tweets and participate in conversations on Twitter.

Then during July of previous year, Twitter started to open the verifying to a wider group and allowed anyone to apply to receive a verified badge.
