Having the Twitter verification badge right next to your name will help others recognise you as authentic, interesting and unique in your field.
The Twitter verification badge is not exclusive to specific industries. You can be verified if you are known for anything from TV, sports and business to religion and journalism.
Being verified will also make your new followers trust you right from the start because of the social proof the blue tick brings.
Our social media experts have a deep understanding of this and have decided to bring forward 6 pieces of advice that you can follow to increase your chances of getting verified on Twitter.
Luckily, we all have a Twitter bio where we have the opportunity to enhance our brands. The Twitter bio is something everyone sees as soon as they check out our profile; therefore it is important that you leave a long lasting impression.
If you are a business, consider having a lengthier and catchier description.
If you are an individual, make sure you let the world know what you are about and what types of things you are into.
Also link your website, if you have one. This applies for both business and individuals.
This one is a no-brainer. If you want that verification badge, you have to look presentable. Make sure you have your logo/profile picture (400x400) & header (1500x1500).
Having those in place will help Twitter confirm your identity, show how unique you are in your own field and will certainly benefit your followers in recognising you immediately.
Know someone that is verified already? Talk to them a bunch. Ask them to mention you here and there. This will help Twitter know that you are authentic and that you are of some public importance if you already know someone that is verified.
Twitter love authenticity and well-being of their community.
You have probably already heard of the say that nothing good comes fast. Asking Twitter to go through your page and determine whether they want to verify you can be your best shot as you can be waiting forever unless something major happens within your industry and you are the reason for it.
Twitter are currently not accepting any applications, however, it is worth going back and checking. They are currently working on a new application process. For more information, please refer to the link below. https://twitter.com/verified
