Twitter has admitted it eventually wants to let anyone get a coveted blue tick on the social media site.
But there's a perception problem with Twitter's blue check-mark badges for verified accounts: according to product management director David Gasca, who also appeared in Dorsey's Periscope broadcast. In November, the accounts of several far-right personalities had their blue check marks removed for violations of Twitter's hate speech policy. Twitter says blue check marks are not meant to be an endorsement but they have become status symbols that confer perks such as appearing at the top of searches. Today the word on the e-streets is that Twitter Wants Everyone To Be "Verified". "All the while, it has to demonstrate its commitment to upholding free speech, while also limiting hate speech".
Originally intended for users to distinguish between the real and parody Twitter accounts of high profile celebrities, the blue checkmark became a symbol of credibility and status - something Gasca said is a "problem".
