Twitter is working on a new guideline for the verification of Twitter Accounts/People, which many users cannot understand. The new guideline says, that the verification is based on the user’s behavior. But if you think about that, how can your behavior change your identity?
4 / We're working on a new authentication and verification program. In the meantime, we are not accepting any public submissions for verification and have introduced new guidelines for the program. https://t.co/j6P0HGXIVq

Of course, users are going mad about this.
As you initially stated, the verification system is to verify people are who they say they are. So why are you removing verification based on behavior? It makes absolutely no sense.

But glad to see, that some users make also some fun out of it.

Hopefully, Twitter thinks about their plans and don’t change that much on a working system.
