Twitter has since a long time ago confirmed records having a place with big names, celebrities, journalists, government authorities, organizations and other significant individuals.
Such records get a little, desired blue identification with a white check stamp.
Be that as it may, that framework experienced harsh criticism this week after Jason Kessler, who set up together the August “Join the Right” challenge in Charlottesville, said he had been checked by the organization.
“It would appear that I FINALLY got checked by Twitter,” Kessler tweeted. “I should be the main average workers’ white supporter with that qualification.”
Different clients promptly berated Twitter.
“This is sickening,” tweeted the comic Michael Ian Black. “Confirming racial oppressors strengthens the expanding conviction that your site is a stage for detest discourse. I would prefer not to surrender Twitter, however, I may need to. Who do you esteem more, clients like me or him?”
According to CNN report,
” Twitter says its system for verifying accounts is broken. Now the company is reconsidering how it hands out its little blue and white check mark icons”.
Hey @jack: very active user, 2.1M followers here: this is disgusting. Verifying white supremacists reinforces the increasing belief that your site is a platform for hate speech. I don’t want to give up Twitter, but I may have to. Who do you value more, users like me or him? https://t.co/5ymcNfFvH0

According to the CEO Jack Dorsey, ” the company realized some time ago the system is broken and needs to be reconsidered.”
“And we failed by not doing anything about it,” he said.
We should’ve communicated faster on this (yesterday): our agents have been following our verification policy correctly, but we realized some time ago the system is broken and needs to be reconsidered. And we failed by not doing anything about it. Working now to fix faster. https://t.co/wVbfYJntHj
