Twitter Wants to Use Wikipedia to Help Determine Who Gets a Blue Checkmark by mikejason77: 10:56am On Aug 10, 2020


Back in November 2017, Twitter announced that it was pausing all account verifications, closing the public submissions process that gives certain accounts the blue checkmark next to their names. The move came official wiki twitter after the social media company was heavily criticized for giving the verified checkmark to Jason Kessler, the organizer of that year’s white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

In its statement at the time, Twitter said that although verification had simply been intended to authenticate identity, it was now being interpreted as any sort of endorsement. “We recognize that we have created this confusion and need to resolve it,” Twitter said.

That was three years ago. Since then, Twitter’s verification process has officially been put on hold, although the company has in fact verified political candidates, medical experts tweeting about COVID-19, and made thousands of other quiet exceptions. Twitter has fended off complaints about the long delay in accepting public verification requests by saying that it has instead been focusing on priorities like election integrity.

Now that the election is over and Fleets have arrived, however, Twitter has signaled its willingness to open up an official path to those coveted blue checkmarks. The company announced Nov. 24 that it was relaunching its verification system in 2021 using a new policy that is open to public feedback until Dec. 8. How has Twitter improved its verification system between now and 2017? As it turns out, a big part of verification 2.0 is relying on Wikipedia.

I started taking CBD oil (the drops you put under your tongue) about five days ago and didn't feel any better. Did it help anyone? What do you think is better: drops, cream for external use or smoking?

Hi, if I have muscle or joint pain, then I use a cbd cream that helps me get rid of it. If I feel anxious, then cbd oil helps me to relax and calm down. But I can say that cbd candy (that contains cannabidiol extract) was useless to me.. Despite the fact that cbd products are a great remedy for many health problems, I try not to use them quite often to avoid addiction. Besides I consult with my doctor and recommend that you do the same if you want to take cbd. But it comes to vape, I allow myself to use the cbd for vaping a few times a week if I have bad days. By the way, here knockoutcbd.com you can find high-quality cbd vape juices.
