According to Twitter, there’s a list of 6 different categories that are actually allowed for profile verification appliances.

Other than that, a profile should be active for at least the last 6 months, it must have a profile picture, an email & a phone number.

Twitter has also shared the application flow which will cover some common questions about who you are (Influencer, Company, Affiliate, etc.) and also, identity verification (ID, email, and official website).

You should also follow the ‘Verified’ account on Twitter to check real-time news and updates about the whole verification process and policy.

And that’s not everything.

The platform is taking the verification process seriously. And by that, we mean that not only should you be a verified user, but also have a powerful branded hashtag that has driven tons of users to engage with; follower count in the top .05% of active accounts located in the same geographic region; etc. Check the image below.

We know that Twitter has done tons of improvements and shared amazing updates regarding better and healthier communications between people.

We’ve seen Fleets take over Twitter just. They help spread the information and are an important part of your Twitter marketing strategy. We’ve been using Fleets since the day they’ve been live and didn’t stop. They help share new and old content anytime. Also, they’re live for 24 hours, just like Instagram, Facebook, or LinkedIn Stories.

Apart from Fleets, we have now Twitter Spaces. Those are the Clubhouse-lookalike features that people are loving for important conversations, without showing their faces, or writing.

Here are also some of the profile types that aren’t eligible: parodies, fan pages, accounts that have violated the platform’s policies, etc.
