|Twitter verification badge|
Finally, the world’s third renown social media platform, Twitter, has opened the floor for anyone with any background to verify his or her account.
The 140-character made the announcement today, July 20 with little or no stress to individuals and brands who are willing to verify their respective accounts.
About verified accounts
The blue verified badge on Twitter lets people know that an account of public interest is authentic.
The badge appears next to the name on an account’s profile and next to the account name in search results. It is always the same colour and placed in the same location, regardless of profile or theme colour customizations.
Accounts that don’t have the badge next to their name but that display it somewhere else, for example in the profile photo, header photo, or bio, are not verified accounts.
Verified badges must be applied by Twitter, and accounts that use a badge as a part of profile photos, background photos, or in any other way that implies verified status, are subject to permanent account suspension.
