Twitter is finally letting general users and other non-verified organisations get the ‘Celebrity’ status on Twitterby verifying their accounts with a blue tick badge. Till now, Twitter used to approach a user and verify his or her account. Today the company has started giving anyone access to the blue tick by simply letting them fill an online form.
The microblogging firm in a blog post adds that it will verify the accounts “maintained by public figures and organizations in music, TV, film, fashion, government, politics, religion, journalism, media, sports, business, and other key interest areas.”

By opening up account verification to everyone around the globe, Twitter aims to “help more people find great, high-quality accounts to follow, and for creators and influencers – no matter where they are in the world – to easily connect with a broader audience.” This also means that account verification would rule out all the fake accounts or bots from the platform.

To fill the form to verify your Twitter account, you can visit the company’s dedicated support page . The one-page form will ask you to confirm the account that has to be verified and why it should be verified. However, to be able to fill the form users would need to have a verified mobile number, confirmed email address, a bio, a profile photo along with a header photo reflecting the person, a birthday, a link to a website other than twitter, and tweets set as ‘Public’ in privacy settings.

Twitter might also ask users to “scan and upload a legible copy of your government-issued ID (such as a passport or driver’s license) to confirm your identity.” Once the form has been completed, Twitter will reply via email. If the request is denied, users can again submit the form 30 days after receiving the email from the company.
