Twitter has released a new set of rules governing how it goes about awarding its blue “verified” badges to users and has begun stripping the accounts that violate its guidelines after coming under fire last week for giving one to Jason Kessler, the white nationalist who organized the infamous “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
