Until now only the likes of celebrities, brands, and high-profile people could have a verified Twitter account, but that has all just changed. Twitter is now giving everyone the opportunity to verify their account and receive that much sought after blue tick on their profile.
There are a few required criteria (such as a verified phone number, email address, profile photo etc) and a form to fill out first, but once submitted if Twitter feels you are “of public interest” you could become one of the cool kids and get your account verified.
Twitter has said they have opened up the application process to everyone to make it possible for people to find more “high-quality” accounts to follow. What do you think this of this new feature, and more importantly do you think your account would be deemed worthy!?
“Our goal with this update is to help more people find great, high-quality accounts to follow, and for creators and influencers - no matter where they are in the world - to easily connect with a broader audience.”
