Verified Twitter account, what is it for?
The first thing you should know is the utility that has this type accounts with the blue check.
The fact that an account is verified does not mean that it is better than another, that it has greater privileges or that, in the case of making money with it in some way, it is paid more for its commercial actions than other users with the same number of followers .
This social network, like the rest, gives this emblem to certain users to check, as its name suggests, the identity of the same. In the case of famous people, it is likely that there are a large multitude of accounts that try to impersonate their identity or, for example, simple fan accounts that repost and share the content of the official account. That is, Twitter gives the verified badge so that, after verifying its identity, it is known that this account is the official account of the person, brand or entity you are looking for.
Therefore, if what you were looking for trying to verify your account was fame and fortune, forget about that because little is going to help you.
What do I need to verify my Twitter account?
This is another of the big questions from users who want to carry out this process. The requirements and information you need to verify your account are the following:
