If you have always wanted to verify your Twitter account but couldn’t do so because you are neither a celebrity nor a known person in your field, here is a good news for you. Now you can do it. Whether you are a known person or not, you can verify your Twitter account because, who knows, maybe you will become very famous in a few months or a few years? This post on Twitter explains in detail what all you need in order to verify your Twitter account successfully. If you love the idea of living like a celebrity, you should look into Luxury Real Estate Auctions as a way of finding those ultra luxury properties to boost your lifestyle to celebrity status. You could also start to hire private jets with Jettly when you travel, for the ultimate travel experience.
But why would you want to verify your Twitter account if you are not a celebrity?
You may think why you would want to verify your Twitter account if you are not a known person? Maybe you’re not even interested and that is fine. Maybe you want to verify your Twitter account for the sake of vanity? After all, at the time of writing this, only 187,000 people are verified on Twitter so it does sound a bit exclusive group to belong to. People feel good when that blue badge appears with their profile pics. Personally, I never feel comfortable belonging to “exclusive groups” but nonetheless, if I can, I would like to verify my Twitter account even if, right now, I’m not a celebrity. Why?
One, you never know when something happens and all of a sudden there you are, a renowned person. Then people will like to impersonate you. They would like to create spoof accounts in your name. They may also like to claim to be you despite not being you. Many things can happen and suddenly you want people to know who is the real Slim Shady. So this is why, if it can be done, there is nothing wrong in taking up a few steps and verifying your Twitter account even if you are not a celebrity.
How to verify your Twitter account even if you are not a celebrity?
There was a time when Twitter would verify accounts only if those accounts belonged to celebrities and renowned people. No longer seems to be the case. Twitter right now seems to be open to applications from general public, as explained in the above link. You need to follow instructions provided by Twitter in order to verify your Twitter account. Here are a few main things you need to have in order to verify your Twitter account:
- A verified phone number
- A verified email account
- A real name for your Twitter handle
- An actual profile photo
- A header photo
- Your birth date
- Your website link (you need to have a website of some sort)
- Sometimes scanned copy of your government-issued ID such as passport or driver’s license
These are the basic bits of information that you need to submit in order to be verified by Twitter although they may ask for more information like why you feel that your Twitter account should be verified.
Anyway, this is general procedure but the point here is, if you want to verify your Twitter account and you are not a celebrity, in some instances, you should be able to do it.
