How to get verified on Twitter

Being one of the most prominent platforms in social media, Twitter has become a stage for almost every influencer or public figure to connect with their respective audience.

Having a verified Twitter account distinguishes a person/organization’s real profile from any fake ones that might be created.

If your profile qualifies, then you may apply for a verified Twitter account. Here’s how you can get you there.

Update Your Profile

The first step in this process is to make sure that all of your information in your profile is accurate and updated.

This includes your bio, profile picture, header picture, and your birthday (for personal accounts).

Verify Your Phone Number And Confirm Your Mail ID

After updated your profile, the next step is to verify and confirm your phone number and mail ID respectively.

You can verify your phone number by navigating to the ‘Settings & Privacy’ option in your profile menu, and clicking on ‘Mobile’ in the menu to the left of your screen.

Once you’ve entered your mobile number and clicked on ‘Continue’, you will receive a One Time Password (OTP) with which you can verify it.

In the same ‘Settings & Privacy’ option, you can navigate to the ‘Account’ section and confirm your mail ID.

Set Your Tweets To ‘Public’

In order to get a verified Twitter account, your tweets should be set to ‘Public’.

You can do this by disabling the ‘Protect Your Tweets’ option under the ‘Privacy and Safety’ menu.

Make Sure Your Profile Relates To You/Your Business

Your username, profile picture, and header picture should relate to who you are (for personal accounts), or your brand (for business accounts).

This means that having a generic profile picture or Twitter handle could hinder your chances of getting verified.

Apply For Verification

Once your profile is ready, you can apply for verification through Twitter’s request verification form.

Make sure to provide any supporting documents or website URLs that could prove your impact in your respective field.

For personal accounts, Twitter might also request a government-issued ID card. A group of moderators will then review your profile and make a decision. In case your request for verification is denied, you may apply again in 30 days.
