The new rules by Twitter say, “Promoting hate and/or violence against, or directly attacking or threatening other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease,” “Violent, gruesome, shocking, or disturbing imagery,” and “Intentionally misleading people on Twitter by changing one’s display name or bio.” White supremacist Richard Spencer, “Unite the Right” protest organizer Jason Kessler and more have spoken out about losing their status.

Spencer said, “Verified no more! Is it not okay to be proudly White?” A new process will be worked on by Twitter for a new authentication program and will release it soon. Until then the company has decided to not accept any submissions.
