How To Verify Your Twitter Account

Are you famous on twitter and are you dealing with impersonation problem?

Then just don’t worry as twitter is ready to help you in such cases. By this feature one can easily verify the genuine account of the user as twitter will give a “Verified Account” badge to the account.You can fill out this form if you need your account to be verified. But remember one thing that this verification is currently in it’s beta (testing) stage and they are not going to verify each and every account you submit.

You can see “verified account” badges in @ Barackobama account. However you may try to verify your account if you are a website owner as twitter verify generally those account who’s twitter account link’s is given on the respective website. But I am still confused about one thing, hopefully you may answer that why the creator of Twitter @ Jack ‘s account is not verified πŸ˜€

Verified by Twitter

Thanks for the informative post. Currently twitter is not giving us the ‘Very Account Badge’; thats the prob. Twitter should provide an option to all its users to get verified.

If every user gets this badge, what’s the use of having it then? πŸ˜‰

Neha April 22, 2011

So what is the process to become “verified”??? I can’t locate the how-to details anywhere! Been posting everywhere as well. Anyone???

Sauravjit April 22, 2011

It’s no longer available:

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, we’ve closed public applications. We have removed our public-facing verification request form. In the meantime, we’re still verifying some trusted sources, such as our advertisers and partners. If you’re one of our partners or advertisers, please follow up with your account manager for details.
