Description

femme pointed out on IRC that we should get @get_tor account verified. With the new request form that twitter has made, this should be easy. I'm making this ticket so I wont forget about this task.

Sounds great, thanks!

This process is currently blocked due to not having a phone number (controlled by the Tor Project) on file. I asked Shari what number should we use and she didn't have an answer.

We can request for the account verification after having a phone number added to the account.

I finally submitted the request. Special thanks to isa for her help.

twitter just sent me an email (it's associated to the account) with this:

"We reviewed the account, and unfortunately it is not eligible to be verified at this time. Please visit our Help Center for more information about the types of accounts we verify."

Twitter stopped accepting verification requests over a year ago:

https://twitter.com/verified/status/968243242184491008

There are reports that they are still verifying accounts for users with connections:

I'm not sure we have the "right" kind of connections.

Adding the keyword to mark everything that didn't fit into the time for sponsor 19.

comment:16 Changed 5 months ago by gaba

Keywords: ex-sponsor19 added
Sponsor: Sponsor19

Remove sponsor 19 and add a keyword ex-sponsor19 to mark all the tickets that could have been in the scope of the sponsor.
