Just days after relaunching its verification application process, Twitter is once again pausing it – this time due to the huge backlog.
However, just days after the announcement, Twitter has once again paused the process – this time due to the huge number of applications.
This was, of course, quite a predictable outcome – albeit an annoying one. If your account belongs to any of the eligible categories, chances are you’ve been waiting for verification to open for a very long time.
Oh well, you’ll just have to wait some more.
We’re rolling in verification requests. So we gotta hit pause on accepting any more for now while we review the ones that have been submitted.
We’ll reopen requests soon! (we pinky swear)

Twitter hasn’t provided much further information about when it might resume its task of reviewing verifications.
In the last few months, Twitter teased the process it launched last week – and even outlined a new policy in December. At that time, the platform also started removing verified badges from accounts that don’t meet its new criteria.
