A verified profile basically mean that Twitter staff have contacted the the person or entity the account is representing and verified that it is indeed who they claim they are. This will really help avoid impersonation or identity confusion where celebrities are involved, and avoid potential lawsuits.

Individual accounts holders will need to provide copy of official government-issued photo ID. And be prepared to answer why you need a verified account. A good idea is to have a Twitter badge or logo on your official site linking back to your profile, which will help in easy verification. of course they verify a limited number of accounts and submitting a request does not guarantee account verification.

Application denied? Dont worry. You can submit same application again after 30 days. Dont spam. Have the relevant details handy.

False Use: If you are don’t have a verified account, but still add a verified blue badge in your profile pic or twitter background etc, they can ban your account. They suggest you use this form only if your account is being impersonated, but it does not imply verification.

    The page does not exist anymore. I suspect they have already changed the method for verifying accounts and automated it perhaps, who knows? At any rate, having your account verified is next to impossible for most people. I hit 2000 people that I follow and LIKE to follow, but cannot get above 940 followers. Geesh, what’s the deal? I can’t follow back anyone and have to sacrifice something/someone possibly important, to me at least. I would be forced to cut them down just follow a few more people. Maybe the gift thing is a good idea, hmmmm….

    Twitter has removed the “Verify Request” page and is no longer working.
    Twitter staff keep viewing all users’ accounts and when they face a forgery case, they call up the real person asking him if it is him, and after finding out his real account, they verify it.
    Currently closed to the public.
