I haven’t heard about Twitter account verification till I read a friend’s blog.
When I first got to know about such a feature, the first question I asked was “How to get a Twitter account verified?”
Getting your Twitter account is somewhat an endorsement that a particular account, identified by a blue badge is authenticated as an account of public interest.
That badge also indicates how influential you are, a boost to your authority in a particular field.
Thus it’s not surprising that one of the first accounts to get Twitter-verified include Oprah Winfrey, Kim Kardashian, Milwaukee Police and The Armstrong Flight Research Center.
Out of over 300 million monthly active users, only about 190,000 accounts have been verified.
Again, not a surprising stats as I understand that getting Twitter-verified is not a walk in the park.
Some who have tried getting verified had to wait for days, sometimes only to be told their application is rejected.
But you can always try again after a month.
I don’t plan to send my application anytime soon, as I am still working to build targeted followers.
However, if you are thinking of getting your Twitter account verified, I think this infographic from SurePayroll would help you :
