Any Twitter User Can Now Request to Have Their Account Verified – Here’s How

The verified badge on Twitter lets people know that an account is authentic. Twitter has created an online application process for accounts to receive verified status.

“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.”

Accounts must have all their information filled out, including a phone number, email address, and birthday. Users must also explain their justification for the badge in a short essay, and provide external URLs.
