Twitter - Do you know how to verify your account?

Twitter lets anyone pay for a verified account (the blue tick goes public). This lets other people know that someone is verified as a real person who is paying for their account.

As outlined on the Twitter website:

Request to verify an account

The blue verified badge on Twitter lets people know that an account is authentic.

We recommend accounts maintained by users in music, acting, fashion, government, politics, religion, journalism, media, sports, business, and other key interest areas to apply to be verified on Twitter. Accounts that are not verified are promoted less than those that are (this is to reduce the power of bots).

Getting verified

To have a verified accound, your account must have the following:

  • A verified phone number
  • A confirmed email address
  • A bio
  • A profile photo
  • A header photo
  • A birthday (for accounts that are not a company, brand, or organization accounts)
  • A website
  • Tweets set as public in Tweet privacy settings
  • Profile and account recommendations

Some common characteristics of verified accounts include:

  • If the account belongs to a person, the name reflects the real or stage name of the person.
  • If the account is a corporation or company account, the name reflects the real name of the corporation or company.
  • The profile and/or header photo reflects the person, the corporation’s branding, or the company’s branding.
  • If the account is a corporate or company account, the email address associated with the account is a corporate or company email address.
