Twitter Opens Account Verification To The Publichttps://twitter.com
Over the next few weeks, everyone on Twitter will start to see the new verification application directly in the Account Settings tab. If your application is approved, you’ll see the blue badge automatically on your profile. If you think they have made a mistake, reapply 30 days after receiving our decision on your application.
To qualify for verification, you must fit the criteria of one of the six categories listed below:
- Companies, brands and organizations
- News organizations and journalists
- Sports and gaming
- Activists, organizers, and other influential individuals
In addition to the category-specific eligibility criteria outlined in our verification policy, your account must be complete, meaning you have a profile name, a profile image and either a confirmed email address or phone number. Your account must also be active within the last six months and have a record of adherence to the Twitter Rules. You can read more about ineligible accounts in the policy as well.
