…ication in building trust into a platform and have thought about doing something similar on Medium. I’m curious from anyone reading this if you think we should do the same thing as Twitter or something different? (Please leave a comment if you have a thought.)
I’ve long thought verification should be part of the internet en mass. It helps with accountability and trust. Not as a status symbol but in a “this is an actual human” sort of way.
I get some people want to operate anonymously or under a pseudonym. So verification should be optional, but my guess is verification would be a lot simpler on Medium than Twitter. For those of us in the Partner Program, you’ve already verified us in a sense — the details on the W9 should be more than enough information to verify we’re humans and not bots.
