Verified Twitter account

Verification is currently used to establish authenticity of identities on Twitter. The goal of this program is to limit user confusion by making it easier to identify authentic accounts on Twitter.

What is a Verified Account?

Any account with a Verified Badge is a Verified Account. Twitter uses this to establish authenticity of well known accounts so users can trust that a legitimate source is authoring their Tweets.

What kinds of accounts get verified?

Verification is used to establish authenticity for accounts who deal with identity confusion regularly on Twitter. Verified Accounts must be public and actively tweeting.

How do I get my account verified?

This program is currently closed to the public.

This means Twitter is not able to accept public requests for verification.

Why is the Beta verification program currently closed?

Twitter’s public beta version of account verification is no longer available. After a long period of manual testing, Twitter has closed public applications. Twitter has removed public-facing verification request form. In the meantime, Twitter is still verifying some trusted sources, such as advertisers and partners.
