Twitter has become the place of discussions and the biggest source of breaking news with 335 million monthly active users. For companies, government figures and influencers alike, the site is, therefore, a very significant platform. It comes with a package of goodies to be verified on Twitter, including being a mark that proves authenticity and ranks top on search results.
Twitter was the first to introduce the verification program on social media. Twitter’s blue verified badge tells people that a public interest account is authentic. The badge appears in the search results next to the name on the profile of an account and next to the account name. It is always the same color and placed in the same location irrespective of customization of the profile or theme color.
If it is determined to be a public interest account, an account may be verified. This typically involves user-held accounts in music, acting, fashion, government, politics, religion, journalism, media, sports, company, and other main fields of concern. In February 2018, while working on a fresh verification program, the micro-blogging network stopped general applications for verification. But if you’re in government or a politician, you can still use the form below to create a request.
Twitter is currently accepting requests for government institutions, officials and politicians. If you fall into those categories, you can submit your request using this form.
