    Hello,
    So, according to Twitter for business people, only 2,000 people outside of the verification department have access to these forms. 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:




    1. Government/Politics - Bio Page or Site Link ed to Twitter, license or passport, must have several notable cite sources.
    2. Fashion -Bio Page & Site linked to Twitter, must have official website, must be licensed in the industry or have several publications.
    3. Music- iTunes Preview Page , must have at least a full album of songs for sale, must have official website linked to Twitter, and be signed by a legit record label. Chances are higher if they have an active account with TuneCore, and soundcloud.
    4. Stand Up Comedy- Official website linked to Twitter, wiki page, notable cite sources, must have been on at least one television network performing within the year of verification request.
    5. Sports: Must have Roster page; be a member of a real team, for other sports specify league-governing body with athlete/coach name mentioned.
    6. Film/Tv- Must have IMDb page. Must have at least one current role with noted character name or listed as self in the year of submission form, Starmeter must be in the top 10,000. Must have official website linked to Twitter. Must have notable cite sources found on the web.
    7. News- Must Have Muck Rack profile page, must have notable cite sources, and must be able to find your Twitter account handle on news blog, website, or broadcast.
    8. None of the above- Must provide official website linking to Twitter, Must have several notable cite sources, must be a part of one of Twitter's partners, and must be advertisement worthy.


    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.



    1. 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.
    2. 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?

    Stand up in court? You're going to sue them to verify you?

    I feel you on wanting to get verified, but the truth is they don't have to verify anyone they don't want to verify no matter what.

    Being verified on a website is a feature, it's not a law, so no it won't stand up... Plus it would be cheaper to spend the $15,000 in ads than it would be to pay a lawyer to take on the Twitter machine.

    How's this? My verification application for my entertainment website Twitter profile page was rejected a year ago? It's harder now tbh... Started using Twitter Ads.

    What's your method? :)

    Who is right? Of course what? Gotta boost that post count I guess.

    Also, I know this thread was gravedigged(gravedug?), but I'm calling bullshit on OP. I've seen fucking teenagers with legitimate access to the verification forms. Also, it's still possible to get verified by claiming people are impersonating you (provided that you're a prominent figure, of course). I'd love to see a source on that info, OP.
