According to the social media giant, it is rolling in verification requests and wants to review submissions before continuing the process.
Twitter’s public verification and authentication process had been paused since November 2017.
That is a long while and is certainly enough reason to have such a high volume of verification requests.
The company’s reason for the long halt adds meaning to a popular Twitter bio phrase, “retweets not endorsement”. In this case, it wanted to be able to prove that verification was not an endorsement.
The company did not reveal when it would resume verification. What we do know is that it might have to refine its vetting process.
It certainly doesn’t want another long hiatus resulting in a Sisyphean backlog once again.
