Twitter has began identifying verified users in additional places across its platform. This means tweets from verified accounts will be marked as such in Twitter’s main timeline rather than exclusively on their individual pages. It just made it a little easier for users to determine which accounts have the little blue tick.

Polynter reports that the social network is identifying verified users in additional places across its platform. This means tweets from verified accounts will be marked as such in Twitter’s main timeline rather than exclusively on their individual pages.

Previously, users had to navigate to each profile to determine whether their tweets were verified or not. It will now be slightly easier for casual users to determine which information comes from trusted accounts and which do not.

For years, being verified on Twitter was only open left for celebrities, famous figures, and noteworthy citizens – a sure sign that they would make it to the top of the social media pile. However, Twitter now allows anyone to apply online to get a “verified” account on the site.

To apply, user need to submit basic information for your account, including the likes of a verified phone number, birthday, email address, profile bio and photo. Your tweets will also need to be set to public rather than private, and you’ll need a website linked to your account.

Twitter is also recommending that individuals submitting a request use their real or stage name, and that the photos you include portray you accurately
