How to get blue verified badge on Twitter

About verified accounts

The blue verified badge  on Twitter lets people know that an account of public interest is authentic.

The badge appears next to the name on an account’s profile and next to the account name in search results. It is always the same color and placed in the same location, regardless of profile or theme color customizations.

Accounts that don’t have the badge next to their name but that display it somewhere else, for example in the profile photo, header photo, or bio, are not verified accounts.

Verified badges must be applied by Twitter, and accounts that use a badge as a part of profile photos, background photos, or in any other way that implies verified status, are subject to permanent account suspension.

What types of accounts get verified?

An account may be verified if it is determined to be an account of public interest. Typically this includes accounts maintained by users in music, acting, fashion, government, politics, religion, journalism, media, sports, business, and other key interest areas.

If you think your account should be verified, let us know. This article includes information about submitting a request to verify an account.

A verified badge does not imply an endorsement by Twitter.

Request to verify an account

The blue verified badge  on Twitter lets people know that an account of public interest is authentic.

We approve account types maintained by users in music, acting, fashion, government, politics, religion, journalism, media, sports, business, and other key interest areas. If you believe your account is of public interest and should be verified, this article outlines information about submitting a request.

Submitting a request

To be able to complete the form, your account must have the following:

  • A verified phone number
  • A confirmed email address
    Note: If the account is a company or organization account, the email address associated with the account should be a company or organization email address.
  • A bio
  • A profile photo
  • A header photo
  • A birthday (for accounts that are not company, brand, or organization accounts)
    Note: This information will be displayed to the audience that you’ve chosen. There are visibility settings available for your birthday that allow you to separately control who on Twitter can see your birth year and who can see your birth day and month in your Twitter profile. Read more here.
  • A website
  • Tweets set as public in Tweet privacy settings

For requests to verify individual accounts (that do not represent a company or organization), we require a copy of your official government-issued photo identification (e.g. passport or driver’s license) in order to confirm your request. Information used for this purpose will be deleted.

Profile and account recommendations

Some common characteristics of verified accounts include:

  • If the account belongs to a person, the name reflects the real or stage name of the person.
  • If the account is a corporation or company account, the name reflects the real name of the corporation or company.
  • The profile and/or header photo reflects the person, the corporation’s branding, or the company’s branding.
  • The bio specifies an area of expertise and/or a company mission.

Additional information

When submitting a request to verify an account, we ask for additional information that can help us evaluate it. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • We’ll ask you to tell us why we should verify an account. If the account represents a person, we want to understand their impact in their field. If it represents a corporation or company, let us know their mission.
  • When providing URLs to support your request, choose sites that help express the account holder’s newsworthiness or relevancy in their field.

Submit a request to verify an account

You can submit a request to verify an account by filling out this form, and we’ll respond to your request via email. Note: In order to access the form, you must be logged in to the Twitter account you would like verified. If you are not already logged in, you will be redirected to the Twitter login page.

If your request is denied, you can submit another request for the same account 30 days after receiving the email from us. If you received a response from us requesting edits to your account and/or additional information, you can submit another request any time after completing the steps outlined in our response.

If you’ve submitted a request and have not yet received an email from us, we may be having trouble delivering it. This article includes troubleshooting steps that may help.
