Twitter Verification Open For Public Applications
Twitter is accepting public submissions from people who want to be authenticated again and additional instructions to follow to retain the verified badge.
All users will soon submit a verification request from their account settings screen. Whether or not an applicant is approved is determined by whether or not the individual falls into one of six authentication groups. Since 2017, the public has been unable to apply for verification.
Twitter has managed to validate identities on a case-by-case basis, including that certain worthy persons and organizations have invariably been left out.
Twitter announced at the time that it had chosen to shut off public applications owing to the misconception that a verified badge signified sponsorship. That was never the case, and hopefully, everyone now understands what a checked badge entails.
Last year, Twitter stated that the public verification program would be relaunched in 2021, with a few tweaks, “We’ve arrived at the point where the new software is being implemented”. Let’s take a peek at the latest stuff.
What ‘Verified’ Means, According to Twitter
According to Twitter, a blue badge means that an account of strong public interest is genuine. It doesn’t have any other connotations. A verification badge can be revoked regardless of how genuine an account is if it repeatedly violates Twitter’s rules and guidelines.
Furthermore, according to Twitter’s revised standards, verification status might be terminated for the following reasons: A verification badge can be revoked regardless of how genuine an account is if it repeatedly violates Twitter’s rules and guidelines.
Furthermore, according to Twitter’s revised standards, verification status might be terminated for the following reasons:
- The account becomes dormant or inactive.
- The individual is no longer in the position that made them eligible for verification in the first place.
- Changing a user’s display name or bio to impersonate or mislead them.
- Serious infractions will result in immediate suspension.
These updated restrictions should help prevent users from misinterpreting verification badges as Twitter endorsements. Users who have been confirmed cannot engage in harmful activity while being verified.
How to Apple For Twitter Verification (Blue Badge)
Over the next few weeks, everyone will be able to access verification apps through the Account Settings page in the Twitter app. Because of the slow deployment, some customers may be able to access the service right now, while others may have to wait. Twitter can ensure that all applications are handled quickly by taking this strategy.
The application procedure entails notifying Twitter which of the qualifying categories you fall under and submitting a piece of identification that verifies your identity.

Twitter said users should expect a response in a few days to a few weeks after applying. The blue badge will be automatically placed in the user’s profile if the application is accepted.
Later this year, Twitter wants to expand the qualifying list to include scientists, professors, and religious leaders.
