Twitter mistakenly verifies fake accounts

Twitter mistakenly verifies fake accounts

said Monday it mistakenly verified a “small number” of fake coffers before permanently suspending the users and removing their blue badges for violating its laws against spam and platform manipulation. 

The error has raised affairs about the company’s new application process for verifying critical, authentic and active accounts because the blue badge is aimed to help people determine if an account is trustworthy. 

Since Twitter well-ordered out the new application process in May, the commercial has been flooded with verification requests. Some users have complained their coffers aren’t getting verified even though they believe they meet the requirements. Last week, the company said it would provide more details in emails near why an account didn’t get verified.

On Sunday, data scientist Conspirador Norteño tweeted that six Turkish coffers created on June 16 that mostly had the same followers received the coveted blue badges. Two of the accounts appeared to have been humorous stolen photos.

Twitter attributed the mistake to a gap in making and procedures that the company says it’s trying to loan. The social network didn’t provide anymore details about how the talarm happened. The company said there’s a team dedicated to reviewing these applications.
