Twitter's CEO says more people will have access to verification, but the verification process is going to roll out in sequences so that the company can put more focus on what they think are the most significant issues around verification, starting with U.S. elections.

There have been a number of recent scams involving cloned Twitter accounts. It will probably be a while before all real users get a checkmark, however, as Dorsey said the priority is verification around candidates in the 2020 United States election.
