Majority of internet users have their accounts on social networking site “Twitter” and these users include not only common internet users but also film stars, popular singers, politicians, successful businessmen, reputed media people and journalists, sportsmen and many more achievers in their respective fields or areas of working. Twitter is used as a means of online communication and is popular among all. It is one of the most convenient and simple ways to reach out to you acquaintances, fans and so on.
The question arises – can all users have Twitter account verified?
The answer to this According to Twitter itself is that the social network is actively verifying accounts and “…concentrates on highly sought users in music, acting, fashion, government, politics, religion, journalism, media, sports, business, and other key interest areas.” Twitter says the follower and tweet count is not a factor in verification and that “If you fall under one of the above categories and your Twitter account meets our qualifications for verification, we may reach out to you in the future.”
Twitter has its own terms and conditions for making an account verified and also reserves all rights related to verification of accounts.
Some of the benefits attached to a verified Twitter account are mentioned below.
Choice of how notifications & mentions would be displayed:
If an individual passes all criteria and gets his/her account verified, in such case he/she is given a choice to decide how the notifications and mentions would be displayed in that account along with the benefit that they can be easily filtered.
Access to account analytics:
A verified Twitter account holder possesses an edge of having access to account analytics that are normally only accessible to advertisers. The analytics includes information regarding the tweet followers and engagement.
