Twitter will finally reintroduce its ‘blue checkmark’ verification program after a more than three-year hiatus.
According to reverse engineering master Jane Manchun Wong, Twitter is working on a new system of verification as evidenced by a ‘request verification’ field found in the ‘personal information’ section of its app’s settings.
Specifically, the new system will allow individual users to request verification from Twitter for the first time since 2017.
