You have to have a talent agent license, a PR license, and must have been in business for at least 10 years. this is what he new form looks like and this is what they ask for each category: Government/Politics - Bio Page or Site Link ed to Twitter, license or passport, must have several notable cite sources.

No matter who you are you have to send in photo ID, location, have a full bio, website link, header, & profile image. Using your real name is always best in either the handle or profile name. If you must use a stage name it needs to be trademarked. Will Twitter be paid by one of their affiliates / Partners for verifying you? IMDB, Roster, Muck Rack, iTunes, Tune Core, Vine, Sound cloud, Amazon.. These are just some of the companies that fork out some money to Twitter when one of their influential users is verified. Unbelievably, YouTube is not one of them. If you are not on any of those sites or your account is not VIP/Influential then Twitter could care less to verify you. Will your Twitter account be broadcasted and advertised to a decent size audience? Assuming they did verify you, how would you advertise Twitter for them? Unless you are spending 5k or more, a month in advertising then your account needs to be advertised in a way that will profit Twitter. Tv shows, News stations, radio shows, music CD's, magazines, are all places where a persons Twitter handle could be advertised to the masses. They look to see if you are one of those people with the power to do that. I have a branded business account on twitter & the trademark is pending, Once the trademark is approved, If twitter refused too verify, I am very confident this would stand up in court, if they refused too verify your official branded business account. Does anyone have any experience on this?
