Today, we are going to be covering how to get verified on Twitter and will be explaining Twitter Blue so you can understand all there is about the subscription.
How to get verified on Twitter?
The meaning of verification, as well as the accompanying blue checkmark, is evolving. Previously, Twitter used the blue checkmark to indicate active, notable, and authentic public-interest accounts that Twitter had independently verified based on certain criteria.
The blue checkmark may now indicate one of two things: that an account was verified using the previous verification criteria (active, notable, and authentic), or that the account has an active subscription to Twitter’s new Twitter Blue subscription service, which launched on iOS in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom on November 9, 2022. Accounts that receive the blue checkmark as part of a Twitter Blue subscription will not be reviewed to confirm that they meet the previous process’s active, notable, and authentic criteria.
Please keep in mind that, in order to reduce the risk of impersonation, display name changes will be temporarily restricted on Verified accounts. Accounts Verified under the legacy program and Twitter’s new Twitter Blue subscription product will be affected.
Moving forward, only accounts enrolled in Twitter Blue on iOS on or after November 9, 2022, will be eligible for the blue checkmark. As a result of this change, Twitter will no longer accept new applications for Verification under the former criteria at this time. Please keep in mind that any accounts subscribing to Twitter Blue for iOS on or after November 9, 2022, will automatically obtain a blue checkmark that will last for the life of the subscribers’ membership term.
Loss of the blue checkmark
Twitter Blue subscribers’ blue checkmarks may be removed at any moment for any reason, including violations of Twitter Policies, including but not limited to Twitter’s rules regarding spam, ban evasion, and impersonation.
Legacy-verified accounts may also be removed at any moment for any reason, including as a consequence of certain types of breaches of the Twitter Rules, such as but not limited to spam, ban evasion, and impersonation. Furthermore, legacy verified accounts are still subject to the criteria mentioned in the prior policy’s “Loss of Verified Status” section.
Official profile label meaning
Twitter uses visual identification signals such as labels and badges on account profiles in addition to blue checkmarks to give additional detail about — and assist differentiate — different sorts of accounts.
Government accounts (institutional accounts, elected or appointed officials, and multilateral organizations)*, certain political organizations such as political parties, commercial companies including business partners, major brands, media outlets and publishers, and some other public figures are given the Official profile label. State-affiliated media and government accounts that serve as geopolitical or official government communication channels are labeled differently. More information about profile labels can be found in Twitter’s Help Center.
