Follow me on Twitter: @iamjayboss first lol...

Twitter allows users to send and read short 140-character messages called "tweets". Registered users can read and post tweets, but those who are unregistered can only read them.

In 2009, Twitter introduced the blue tick badge as a means of verifying pages of famous people including celebrities, politicians and so on.

As at today, only 1% of the 310 million active users can boast of it, in the past, Twitter usually contact this famous people or brands for the verification to be carried out.

But today, Twitter is announcing that anyone whose account is of public interest can get his or her page verified so far you a valid email address, verified phone number, a profile photo plus a header photo, birthday, website, bio and public tweets can fill the verification request form on the company’s support page.

Additional information such as scanning and uploading a legible copy of a government-issued ID and giving reason(s) why the account should be verified may also be requested.

Apart from helping verified users amass multitude of followers and recognizing original accounts, having the blue tick enables features such as filtering mentions, likes and replies notifications to only show the ones from other verified users.

Tina Bhatnagar, Twitter’s vice president of User Services said that the company’s goal is to offer more engaging and informative accounts that the public can follow:

We want to make it even easier for people to find creators and influencers on Twitter so it makes sense for us to let people apply 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.

An email will be sent to the applicant to know whether the request is approved or not. The company stated in a press release that the application process will be available worldwide this week.
