How To Become Twitter Verified
We all recognize the coveted blue checkmark on Twitter. The verified badge confirms that your favorite celeb account is not a catfish. Phew, that was a close one. A verified Twitter account can be just as important to your business as it is to a celebrity or a public figure. If your Twitter account is of public interest, verification will let your followers know you are the real deal.
Here’s how to get it done:
Any Twitter account may request verification through Twitter’s online form. You will be asked to list your business’s username, website, phone number, email, profile picture, header image, bio and birthday. After submitting the basic info, Twitter will evaluate your request for verification. Rejected on the first try? Don’t fret. Twitter allows you to submit another request after 30 days.
Is Twitter verification a life or death situation for your business? No (if it were, @onthemarcmedia would be verified by now), but a verified account will boost your business’s credibility and social media presence. In other words, the little blue checkmark is here to help. Now that your business is verified you can “check” that task off your list and tweet away!
