Now, You Don't Have To Be A Celebrity, Journalist Or Politician To Get Verified On Twitter.

If you are that obsessed/curious with Social media, especially Twitter, you must have sent Google a “How do I get verified on Twitter” query? It would interest you to note that the company has opened its Twitter verification process to all Tom, Dick, and Harriet.

However, there are conditions.

Twitter says it will consider accounts of users “in music, acting, fashion, government, politics, religion, journalism, media, sports, business, and other key interest areas” or brands within the same areas. If you fall into that category, you will need to have a verified phone number, a confirmed email address, a bio, a profile photo, a website and a birthday set. Of course, your account must be public.
Applicants will need to explain why they believe they are sufficiently worthy of verification and, Twitter says, may be required to show a copy of government-issued ID to confirm their identity.
If you application gets declined, you can re-apply for the same account in thirty days.

When you realize the Verification process isn't "so" tasking.

So, if you are that keen on having the blue tick, you can start applying today. Just submit a request using this form, and Twitter will respond via email.

    But twitter verifies above categories before now…
    Twitter verification is bossy, but I don’t think its too important for me, when I don’t fall in any of those categories, the important thing is that I got plenty real followers…

      Well .. what I think they are trying to say is every one can get verified provided you apply ..unlike the previous times where twitter automatically verifies you
