The Twitter blue tick badge that specifically identifies accounts associated with popular personalities is to be made available to all its users.
In a statement by Tina Bhatnagar, Twitter Vice President for user services, the management announced that they want to make it even easier for people to find creators and influencers on Twitter thereby opening application for verification.
“We hope opening up this application process results in more people finding great, high-quality accounts to follow, and for these creators and influencers to connect with a broader audience.”
Normally, the verified blue ticks are exclusive to public figures but now an application form is available online for everyone.
An applicant who wishes to have their account verified will give their details, and prove that their account “is of public interest”. In addition, telephone numbers, email address and website are a must and they must also be tweeting publicly.
