How to request a verified account on Twitter
Requesting a verified account on Twitter is a pretty simple process. You just need to fill a simple form. The verification process usually takes 2-3 days. Still, you’ll need to keep few things in mind. Let’s discuss about the process in detail:
Here’s what you’ll require to request a verified account on Twitter:
- A confirmed email address
- A verified phone number
- A profile photo
- Birth date (for accounts that don’t belong to a company, brand or organization)
- A website
- Tweets set as Public in Tweet privacy settings
Apart from this you’ll also need to explain, why you want to verify a specific account. You’ll be prompted for links to websites to support your request. You can also be asked to send in copies of an ID card.
For complete list of requirements and additional information required for the account verification, you can navigate through this support document on Twitter’s official website.
Submit a request to verify your account
Once you’ve navigated through the support document and fulfilled all the criteria you’ll require for the verification process, you’ll be asked to verify your account by filling out this form. Twitter will respond to your verification request via email.
In case the request is denied, you’ll need to wait for 30 days, before you can send another verification request for the same account.
In case you’ve submitted a request but haven’t received any response from Twitter yet. There may be problem in delivering the mail. In such case, try sending a message on your email id again. If the issue still persists, visit your account settings and change your email address to a new one!
To access the form, you’ll need to login into your Twitter account first. If you’re not already logged in, you’ll be redirected to the Twitter login page.
