"Twitter announced in a livestream that the company plans to offer its blue-check-mark verification badge to more of its users, an oft-requested feature," Jack Dorsey, CEO, Twitter was quoted as saying by CNET on Friday.
The micro-blogging site is working on a new process to verify people's identity and, thus, ensure credibility.
"We want to be one of the most trusted services in the world and we know we have a lot of work to get there," he said.
However, Dorsey did not elaborate on whether this process requires users to submit a Facebook profile, phone number, email address or a government-issued photo ID.
Introduced in 2009, initially, the blue check mark distinction was bestowed primarily on celebrities, athletes and public figures to check impersonators.
The badge was later rolled out to journalists and other users. To obtain a verified check mark, users have to apply with a reason for why they need one.
