Yesterday, Twitter decided to verify Jason Kessler, an organiser of the August neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville that left one woman dead. Shortly after her death, Kessler even tweeted that the woman was a "fat disgusting Communist" and characterised her murder as "payback time." But Twitter refuses to explain why it verified Kessler - and users are so angry that Twitter is now suspending its verification procedures while the company figures out what to do.
