A year ago, @Twitter stopped “verifying” people, citing a need to review their policy.

Like it or not, that checkmark matters for amplification & career trajectory in some fields.

If the inability to get verified has impeded the advancement of your career/cause, DM me. /1
I work in the realm of politics-journalism-activism. I see the disparity every day. I worked closely with candidates throughout 2017/18 who were butting up against verified incumbents with their unverified accounts. It was frustrating for many. We found some backdoors. /2
I know a number of journalists & writers who can’t crack into greater visibility due to their lack of verification. This is truly unacceptable. @Twitter is squelching career advancement for worthy voices.

It’s time for answers. /3
.@Twitter either needs to come out with a new, clear policy for verification or strip every account of verified status, to level the playing field. @jack: do something.

I’ll be writing an article abt people whose careers have been impeded by the “verification pause”. DM me. //
