Twitter revealed in a blog that it will take the help of technology as well as Human View to verify users’ accounts.
Twitter has reopened its verification request portal after halting the verification process for a few days. This means that users can resubmit the verification request. The verification process was put on hold by the micro-blogging platform weeks after it was launched. Earlier, Twitter had reopened its verification portal five years after closing the process.
Twitter halted the verification process on May 29 but reopened the portal four days later. Announcing this, Twitter posted from its official account, “Requests are open! Sorry for the interruption, you can now apply again for the blue badge.” Some users have not yet received the verification request form on their app. Twitter had earlier said that it would be rolled out gradually to users.

Twitter had revealed in a blog that it will take the help of technology as well as human approach to verify the accounts of users.

So while filling the verification form, users will have to confirm their identity and provide various links to verify their identity and their work related details.
