Anyone can now apply to get verified account on Twitter
Microblogging website Twitter has just announced a big change in its profile verification process. It has made it easier to get the blue verified check mark on Twitter. Now, anyone can apply for account verification via an online application process.
So, celebrities, journalists, athletes, politicians and other high-profile figures that are likely to be impersonated on Twitter can now apply to get verified profile if they do not already have.
In order to be verified, users will have to make sure that they have verified the phone number and email address, bio, profile picture, birthday and website.
If you are ready, You can submit a request to verify an account by filling out this form. Please be sure to use this form if you think you should get verified profile. Do not waste Twitter people’s time and your time.
The company did the same previously but pulled the feature years ago. This was done because everyone on the Internet wanted to have verified profile. Since the verification has been done, it becomes very hard for check and verify profiles from hundreds of thousands of applications.
“We want to make it even easier for people to find creators and influencers on Twitter so it makes sense for us to let people apply for verification,” said Tina Bhatnagar, Twitter’s vice president of User Services. “We hope opening up this application process results in more people finding great, high-quality accounts to follow, and for these creators and influencers to connect with a broader audience.”
Twitter started account verification back in 2009. Twitter also confirmed that 187,000 users are currently verified on the platform, which is about .06% of the company’s 310M monthly active users.
The application process is already live and will be available globally this week.
