This article tells you how to improve your likelihood of Twitter verifying your Twitter account, which causes a blue-and-white checkmark icon next to your Twitter name to appear.
Note: You can not presently apply for verification since Twitter suspended the verification application process in November 2017 ; however, you can optimize your account for verification to encourage Twitter to check it.
- Understand who is generally qualified to verify. The most popular reasons for verification— whether you're submitting the application yourself or being handpicked by the verification team at Twitter — include being a extremely recognizable public figure (musicians, performers, athletes, artists, public officials, public or government organizations, etc.), or whether your name and image are parodied or impersonated on various Twitter accounts, leading to identity confusion.
When considering you for verification, Twitter will not take into consideration your amount of supporters or tweets.[2 ] For more data, read the conditions of the Verified Account. These can be found by going to the Verified "About" page on Twitter.
- Work on Twitter. By posting at least twice a day and involving individuals who tag you in their mentions, your account will qualify as "active" on Twitter, and it will also boost the favorable reception of your content by your audience.
Make sure you are talking to your audience about your content, services, or otherskillset(s) so that Twitter can see that your audience is concerned about your government effect.
- Have an account that is openly influential. As noted above, Twitter favors publicly acknowledged accounts such as artists and entrepreneurs over user accounts that have little public access to them. If you're working for a newspaper, performing for a business, or interacting with the public in any manner, you're going to want to play that up here.
You should also prevent posting contenues that are contentious or abrasive. Although Twitter verification is not a Twitter endorsement, it takes into account your account's good-naturedness (or lack of it).
You may have a blog or YouTube channel, for instance, that you use to talk to an audience. If you want to boost your likelihood of verification, this should be the focus of your Twitter account.
- Update your data about your account. Verification requirements for Twitter are relatively stringent, so you'll need your profile to contain data that meets these requirements, including your profile and header pictures, your name, your bio, and your place.
- Follow other Verified Accounts checked. This will allow you both to see how other verified accounts act and boost the likelihood that your account will be checked by Twitter. Following verified reports demonstrates you are serious about participating in debate with the verified society.
As with any kind of social media commitment, tagging these verified accounts in your content and opening dialog with them if possible enables the standing of your account.
- Contact the official verified account on Twitter. You can tweet to the Twitter Verified account (@verified) and ask them to review your account if you want to conduct some kind of actionable gesture. This is unlikely to produce particular outcomes, but for the Twitter Verified team, it may put your account on the map.
Be courteous when you go to the Verified account on Twitter. There is always a chance that if they don't appreciate your correspondence, they will blacklist your account.
- Be patient. Your account may not be verified for a very long time (if ever) even with the perfect account and commitment. Twitter has millions of periodic content accounts to review, so be patient and maintain your account in case Twitter gets around to check it for verification.
Most probably, at some stage, the Twitter verification request will return, meaning the method for applying for a verified account will be much more direct. You're going to have to play the waiting game until then.
