Twitter is opening the blue checkmark to everyone. The company now lets users request a verified account on its website by filling out a form with a verified phone number and email address, a profile photo, and additional information about why the verification will be helpful.
Twitter states that, "an account may be verified if it is determined to be of public interest."
Twitter's vice president of user services, Tina Bhatnaga, said in a statement that, "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."
It is still unclear why Twitter has opened up the verification process to the public, but you can be sure that it will be helpful for artists and content creators across the platform. So go apply for your very own blue checkmark today!
