We’re back to rolling out access to request a blue badge. If you’re planning to apply and don’t yet have access, keep checking your account settings. Thanks for sticking with us.
We’ve temporarily hit pause on rolling out access to apply for Verification so we can make improvements to the application and review process. For those who have been waiting, we know this may be disappointing. We want to get things right, and appreciate your patience.
In relaunching Verification, we set out to ensure both the policy and application is fair and inclusive. That means being consistent with Verification decisions and evaluating each application––no matter who it comes from––based on our policy criteria. https://help.twitter.com/managing-your-account/about-twitter-verified-accounts … (2)
We're continuing our work to improve our Verification application and process. We've added a voluntary survey at the end of the application to better understand our progress on making our Verified community more diverse and representative of everyone who uses Twitter. (1/2)
Yes, we’ve relaunched Verification, but our work isn’t done yet. We’ll continue to listen to your feedback to improve our policy and the application process.
We know some of you are still waiting for the option to apply. We're still rolling out access to keep up with the volume of applications we’re getting. It should be rolled out to everyone soon! Patience isn't part of the criteria, but we appreciate yours.
Still with us? To help you and clarify the info we accept for your category, we’ll be adding more guidelines within the application.
In the application, journalists must link to their specific about page/bio, or to articles that reference them on the news org's official site. Independent or freelance journalists must provide links to 3 articles in Verified publications in the 6 months before applying.
Journalists Your Twitter profile must reference the news org you’re affiliated with and link to its official website The news org(s) you reference must be a notable, Verified organization as listed in our policy:https://help.twitter.com/managing-your-account/about-twitter-verified-accounts …
Follower count For any company/brand/organization and those applying as an activist/influential individual, your follower count must be in the top .05% of active accounts located in the same geographic region.
Authenticity If you’re using a website to verify your authenticity, it must be the website for a Verified organization. The website must also reference your name and Twitter account.
We’ve heard your feedback that we can be more clear on why an application didn't get approved. Decision emails will now give more context on why requests don't meet our criteria. Here's a breakdown of some things to note before applying again (after 30 days)
Requests are open! Sorry about that pause –– now you can get back to your quest for a blue badge.
We’re rolling in verification requests. So we gotta hit pause on accepting any more for now while we review the ones that have been submitted. We’ll reopen requests soon! (we pinky swear)
I designed the new verification application. TLDR; save yourself the DM slide, I still can't get you verified. https://twitter.com/verified/status/1395400234952441862 …pic.twitter.com/2zwkHp22Fu
