I always thought it would be quite cool to get verified on Twitter with the little checkmark next to your name. Although Twitter has made this seem impossible to the average, unpopular user, I was wondering how the system works. For example, if you buy someones verified account off of them, and change the name, bio, picture, ect.. to whatever, does the verification go away until someone verifies it again? IMO it could be useful to have this verification status in many ways. For example, let's say you're on a gig website, like Fiverr, and there are two service offering to retweet your tweet to 1,000,000 followers, but one is verified. Any sane person would choose the verified account. Just wondering how the system works, if anybody knows. Thanks!
