Mr. Spencer, the president of the National Policy Institute think tank and a participant in the August rally, said it was "time for Washington to regulate Silicon Valley" after he lost his verified badge Wednesday.
Twitter has not yet given a date as to when verification will be back up, so whether the update will act as a plaster over a bullet hole remains to be seen.
Twitter is working on developing a new authentication and verification program, the social media company announced in a tweet from its support account.
Changes to Twitter's verification process have left a number of far-right and white nationalist figures - including Richard Spencer and Jason Kessler - without their cherished blue tick.
Users received email notifications of their verification removal Wednesday.
That statement seems to imply that Twitter considered verification as some sort of merit badge, but I digress.

Trump Takes a Water Break, Jokes Flood Twitter

"Verification has always been perceived as an endorsement", the company tweeted Wednesday.
Twitter issued new guidelines for verified accounts in an ongoing battle to solve its harassment issues. The company said it would also review all verified accounts - about 287,000 in total. For example, the Twitter account belonging to Harvey Weinstein is still verified, as is the account of Kevin Spacey.
In the end, verification on Twitter was obviously meant to let users searching for the account of a particular person (particularly those who are more famous in one field or another) know if they've found the actual individual or some parody account or perhaps just someone with a similar name.
Twitter recently suspended its verification process, after its own CEO said the system needed work. Now Twitter says an account may become unverified if it's found to be "promoting hate and/or violence", "inciting or engaging in harassment", threatening violence, or promoting hate groups. But as it stands, Twitter obviously feels that Spencer can still spout his opinions on their platform, but not with the implication that they "endorsed" him.
