Your chance of getting the Twitter verification badge may be about to arrive. Researcher Jane Manchun Wong revealed that a new profile verification process on the platform will be restarted next week. The information would have come from personal sources of the software engineer famous for anticipating news from social networking apps.
The process would be done through a form and it is not clear whether there will be prerequisites for applying – numbers of followers, length of account usage or having enabled 2-step verification, for example. According to screenshots shared by Wong, eligible personalities would be:
- Activists, organizers or influencers;
- Companies, brands or organizations;
- Entertainment groups and their members;
- Official pages of government, politicians or associates;
- Journalists or news media;
- Athletes, eSport professionals or sports entities;
To apply for the seal, the user must need to prove his identity by means of an official document, corporate e-mail or web page address. Subsequently, the candidate would need to demonstrate his activity through data from Google Trends, Wikipedia articles that talk about him, news from trusted vehicles signed by him (published in the last six months) or through his organization’s official website.

Reinforcing the authenticity of this process, the rumors are in accordance with the official page of verified accounts of the Twitter help center. Perhaps, the company is taking advantage of the launch of the “tips” of the social network to expand the list of profiles with the verification seal.
In November last year, the website announced that it would give a new opportunity to check profiles sometime in the beginning of 2021. The information provided with Wong matches what was anticipated by the company.
For now, there are no official dates for the start of the process, so try to wait for more information.
