Anyone Can Now Apply To Be Verified On Twitter


It may have just become a little easier to get the blue check mark on Twitter.

The company has just announced that they are opening applications to apply for verification on the platform. Being verified gives users a blue check mark on their profile to “let people know that an account of public interest is authentic”. In the announcement the company said that 187,000 users are currently verified on the platform, which is about .06% of the company’s 310M monthly active users.

In order to be verified, users will have to make sure their account has a verified phone number and email address, bio, profile picture, birthday and website.

The company also said they will ask you to tell them why you should be verified, and potentially ask for a government-issued ID to confirm your identity.
