Twitter has been facing heated criticism since it verified the account of Jason Kessler – an organizer of white supremacist rally in Virginia.

Facing massive outrage from its users – over the verification of the account of the organizer of the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia – social networking platform Twitter on Thursday said that it has temporarily suspended its account verification exercise.

Over a post from its official handle, @TwitterSupport, Twitter said, “Verification was meant to authenticate identity and voice but it is interpreted as an endorsement or an indicator of importance. We recognize that we have created this confusion and need to resolve it. We have paused all general verifications while we work and will report back soon.”

The micro-blogging site has been facing heated criticism since it gave a verification badge to Jason Kessler – an organizer of the far-right ‘Unite the Right’ protest – on Wednesday.

After Twitter’s verification – which provides a blue mark next to the names of the verified users – Kessler wrote his more than 13,000 followers, “Looks like I FINALLY got verified by Twitter. I must be the only working class white advocate with that distinction.”

Enraged by Twitter’s decision to verify Kessler’s account, several users – including celebrities – condemned the social networking platform’s move through several posts on Twitter.

And amid several more posts questioning Twitter’s move to verify Kesslers’s account, the company CEO Jack Dorsey, over a post in Twitter, said, “We should’ve communicated faster on this: our agents have been following our verification policy correctly, but we realised some time ago the system is broken and needs to be reconsidered. And we failed by not doing anything about it. Working now to fix faster.”
