Washington Post: Twitter said it fixed ‘verification.’ So I impersonated a senator (again).. “After Blue 2.0 (my term for it) launched on Dec. 12, I made another faux Markey and applied for verification. Some of Twitter’s new requirements slowed down the process — and might dissuade some impatient impersonators — but the company never asked to see a form of identification. Last week, up popped a blue check mark on my @SenatorEdMarkey account. Oops! I did it again. Twitter didn’t reply to a request for comment. After I published this story, Twitter suspended the @SenatorEdMarkey account.”
