Ah, the coveted blue tick next to your Twitter profile! The blue tick means that you have managed to get verified on Twitter and that means that you are an official representative of the account that you are managing.

Usually, getting verified on Twitter is a long task that has quite some requirements before you enter the hall of fame. But now, it is a lot easier to get verified on Twitter.

Twitter has opened its door to verified users, which was earlier reserved for celebrities and official organizations and people of interest. You too can now have a verified tick next to your profile or your company’s profile.

“Our goal with this update is 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”. – Tina Bhatnagar, Vice-President of User Services, Twitter

However there is a catch. According to an official statement by Twitter, it will still only verify accounts that are deemed to be of public interest.

But you can still give it a shot. To apply for verification, you need to meet some criteria like a verified phone number, email address, website, and public tweet settings.
