Twitter on Tuesday announced it is now accepting requests to verify a specific Twitter accounts.
You can request verification for a personal account, in addition to one belonging to a brand or company. Previously, there was a mysterious process for getting verified.
Before filling out the form, Twitter requires an account has the following:
- A verified phone number
- A confirmed email address
- A bio
- A profile photo
- A birthday (for accounts that are not company, brand or organization accounts)
- A website
- Tweets set as public in Tweet privacy settings
Beyond the basic account settings, you'll also need to explain why a specific account should be verified. You'll be asked for links to websites to "support" your request, and you may be asked to send in copies of an ID card. For a complete list of requirements and additional information Twitter may ask for, be sure to read through this support document.
When you're ready, you can fill out this form to request verification. Log into the account you are requesting verification for, then follow the prompts.
At time of writing, a placeholder page initially appeared, indicating the feature was rolling out over the course of the coming days. After a few refreshes, however, the verification form seen above appeared. If you see the same message, keep checking back.
