WHY GETTING TWITTER VERIFIED IS IMPORTANT
In a prepared statement, Twitter has said that it is their hope that by getting Twitter verified, their users will find great, high-quality accounts.

For Twitter users, it makes it easier to trust an account because of that white checkmark. They can know that your company is the real deal and not a fake looking to discredit or provide the wrong information.
THREE EASY STEPS TO GET VERIFIED
In July, Twitter announced that you can now get yourself and your company verified using these easy steps:
- Go to your Twitter Account Settings. Verify your information like phone number or email address and your profile photos. Make sure your message settings are set to public, not private.
- Make sure your username reflects your company. For example, if the company’s name is “Tractus Online,” make sure that that is reflected on your handle.
- Request to Verify Your Account. This is where you provide information about why your company should be verified. Get examples ready of any new articles that mention your company’s relevance and impact in your industry. Have two URLs ready for verification and some IDs for further verification.
After you have filled out the verification, Twitter will get back to you via email. If you get rejected, you can re-apply after 30 days.
