American company Twitter announced that it will reconsider the policy of verification of user accounts.

As noted in the statement of the social network, earlier it was implied that verification establishes the authenticity of the identity of the owner of the page. Subsequently, however, the verification icon in the users eyes turned into evidence of «approval» or «indicator of importance.»

«We are aware that has created this confusion, and are working on a fix… We are working on a new program for verification and installation of the authenticity of the accounts», — stated in the message.

The company added that applications for verification are temporarily suspended.

Twitter also plans to revise the policy regarding pages that have already been verified.
