It's Now Much Easier To Get Yourself Verified On Twitter
How do I get verified on Twitter? All the details on how to get your profile officially verified with a little blue tick at MTV.co.uk
As a member of 2k16 society, there are probably only a few things you really, really want to achieve in life. The first is probably to catch a Mewtwo on Pokemon Go and rub it in all your trainer mates' faces. The second is to get Kylie Jenner to retweet that banging Lip Kit selfie it took 450 shots to perfect, and the third to get your profile officially verified on Twitter.
While the first two are still going to need some working on, we can at least help with the last as it's just become about a million times easier to get that hallowed little blue tick on your Twitter profile.
Providing there's a good reason you should be verified (ie. you are a wannabe popstar, someone keeps pretending to be you or you went viral on YouTube for being able to fit an entire shoe inside your mouth), it's now way easier to make it happen. Before now you had to follow the Twitter Verification account and sort of hoped they noticed you, but now there's an official application process with a full-on form meaning that basically anyone can apply.
There's a few tips for optimising your profile and making it more likely you'll get the official nod, starting with making sure your basic info is all up to date. You need a clear profile photo, a header, a bio, your bday and a verified phone number, email address and website all listed.
You will also need to have a public profile so people can see your tweets whether they are following your or not. When that's all sorted, you can apply right here.
All we'll say is that it's probably worth thinking about why you deserve to be verified in advance as the set of questions Twitter want you to ask are more intense than the ones you get on some job interviews.
You'll find out if you've been accepted within 30 days, but if you do get rejected, you can always apply again.
GOOD LUCK. And MAY THE ODDS BE EVER IN YOUR FAVOUR.
