Until recently, in order to be Twitter Verified (with the blue badge tick icon next to the user’s name) you had to be a public figure of some sort. But, recognising that there are plenty of creators and influencers on Twitter, or micro celebrities as I like to call them – famous to their followers – the social network is now making it possible for these people to apply for verification.
You have to explain why you should be verified, and provide a host of supporting information. You’ll find everything you need here to make your application.
