Once again, popular microblogging site Twitter has suspended its newly released verification request process to new people.
When Twitter first reopened verification, they were faced with too many applications causing the platform to go on a short hiatus.
After this, many users complained of bias as they fit the requirements and yet were not being verified.
Just a few days ago, Twitter said it was going to send out emails to users explaining why their verification application was rejected. This would then make it easier for users to reapply with all the necessary information in case they had missed out on anything the first time around.
Now, Twitter has now announced that they are halting the rollout to apply for verification for a short while because they need to improve the application and review process.
We’ve temporarily hit pause on rolling out access to apply for Verification so we can make improvements to the application and review process.
For those who have been waiting, we know this may be disappointing. We want to get things right, and appreciate your patience.

In a post, the platform asked users to hold on for a bit while they “get things right”. Twitter has not mentioned a timeline though for when the verification process is going to be resumed. For people who applied for verification before Twitter shared that post, the platform has said it is currently going through all the requests they have already received.
Replying to a user Twitter says it is “working quickly to implement some improvements to the application and review process before giving more people the option to apply.”
