Twitter is the home of debates and the largest source of breaking news. Therefore, the site is a very important platform for businesses, public figures and influencers alike. Being verified on Twitter comes with a package of goodies, including being a mark proving authenticity and ranking top on search results. Twitter was the first social media network to introduce the verification program. The blue verified badge on Twitter lets people know that an account of public interest is authentic. The badge appears next to the name on an account’s profile and next to the account name in search results.
An account may be verified if it is determined to be an account of public interest. Typically, this includes accounts maintained by users in music, acting, fashion, government, politics, religion, journalism, media, sports, business, and other key interest areas. On February 2018, the micro-blogging network paused general requests for verification while it worked on a new verification program. But if you are in the government or a politician you can still make a request using the form below.
