Feel like you’re a person of public interest who should have a verified account on Twitter? Well, it’s now easier than ever to get recognized as such, as Twitter is beginning to roll out a new application that allows anyone to apply for a verified account.
Verified accounts on Twitter are designated with a blue badge icon, ensuring that the account is authentic. The social media platform generally gives verified status to celebrities, public figures, creators and influencers.
“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.”
You can apply for Twitter’s verification status by filling out this online application. Best of luck!
Back in May, Twitter announced a new update that will stretch its 140-character limit.
