Twitter on Friday said it’s once again hitting pause on its verification program. The company reopened public applications for verification in May after a four-year shutdown as it reevaluated its application process. Now, it appears the company has already run into more roadblocks. 
A week after relaunching verification applications, Twitter said it was flooded with so many requests that it was hitting pause on accepting new applications. The company reopened requests a few days later.
