What is Twitter
Twitter is a free social networking microblogging service that allows registered members to broadcast short posts called tweets. Twitter members can broadcast tweets and follow other users' tweets by using multiple platforms and devices.

As of July 2016, you don't have to wait for Twitter to handpick you to become a verified user - you can actively request to have your account verified.

It will be cool if you had that white check mark in a blue cloud on your Twitter profile? Well Although requesting verification doesn't guarantee you'll get the coveted check mark at this time, you can increase your chances of getting verified by being active on the service and filling out a request.
We have compile a complete tutorial on how to perform this some all you need is to follow it carefully.


Submitting a Request is one of the first step you need to take before you will be be verified fully.

Step 1

Step 3
Now you'll automatically be asked to submit a request for the account you are logged into. Log into a different account if the one that displays is not the one you wish to request verification for.

Step 4

If you are a company or corporation, check the box at the bottom-left corner of the screen to indicate it.

Step 5
Add any missing information. If your Twitter account lacks any information that is required to submit a request, you will be notified on the next page. Add this information to your Twitter, and then return to the page to continue.

Step 6
Check the section on Increasing Your Changes of Verification for a list of the information you'll need to have handy in order to be eligible to make a request.

Step 12
Click the link in the direct message to be taken to finish the process.

If your request is denied, don't be afraid! You can re-submit your request after 30 days.

Step 13
Complete the verification process. The final part of the process has 3 parts:

(1) Learn how to Tweet effectively,

(2) Connect with other Interesting Twitter Users,

(3) Protect your Account.

Learn how to Tweet effectively gives you a choice between 2 tweets and asks you to choose which one is better. It has the form of a quiz, but there will be no negative effects if you do not answer correctly. It is designed to teach you to increase your Twitter followers.

Connect with other Interesting Twitter Users gives you the option to follow other verified accounts. Twitter believes that this gives you more legitimacy as a verified user.

Protect your Account asks you to enter a phone number that Twitter can call if there are any problems with your account. Once you have completed this step, your account will be verified.

Step 14
Finally Do not change your account information. Once you have received a verification badge,

it is important to keep your account information the same. Changing information, such as your profile image, can cause Twitter to remove the badge, forcing you to contact them again.
