Twitter does not verify the account of Dotcom
Kim Dotcom, the famous and controversial founder of megaupload is having trouble getting verification of your Twitter account, we perform action as public figures to avoid being confused with profiles of imitators.
Kim is the case, as we well know that habitually uses Twitter @KimDotcom to share news and scoops on the case to Megaupload, and where you are more than 113 thousand people: Although the Google the Twitter profile of the founder of Megaupload, this account appears as the first result in a respectable and very confusing (for some internet) is second @Kim_Dotcom , ie, an imitator, with about 10 thousand followers.
What do we know what is true? Well just take a look at each one to realize: In my case, I long to Dotcom the social network in its own true and there I heard some “firsts” as the premiere of his video ” Mr.President “, or I have seen some personal photos that shares … The imitator spends his life talking nonsense, so in theory it is easy to tell which is which.
However, to avoid confusion, the founder of Twitter Megaupload asked who put the “check” of “Verified Account” in @KimDotcom, and as it has told TorrentFreak, so far not been successful …
The reason? The microblogging social network requests that the person requesting verification of your account, send a valid ID to ensure it is who claims to be. Dotcom has said he sent a copy of your International Driving Permit issued by Hong Kong, with his photograph and official seal … And there is the detail: Twitter does not take as valid the document.
Let’s get one minute at the point of Twitter: A German citizen who is in New Zealand and is legally requested by the United States … A driving license issued in HongKong? For in that processed the request also was contrived history, so refused to verify the account.
And since we’re talking about Dotcom, instead of sending a copy of your passport or other document, as it was to take the story on TorrentFreak, and make it more “attractive”, published on Twitter @KimDotcom, a message claims to be he who claims to be and to leave no doubt, attach a picture with a note made by hand that says “Twitter, it’s really me”, published in Instagram:
But it does not stop there: Dotcom claims to have problems on Facebook, a social network that does not accept “Dotcom” as his middle name … not as a surname.
Anyway, I think it would have been easier to send other identification to Twitter (which also gets it done because if it really is an international driving permit which sent Dotcom, should be worth, right?) But because he likes draw attention …
Sure, we should stop to read in detail the policies Twitter about it, that if you exclude drivers’ licenses, for example, has every reason to deny verification. To all these: Will you accept the certifying microblogging social network account after the photo you have posted, or are no longer shows Dotcom and send another document? We’ll know soon.
