Twitter Account Verification: A verified account on Twitter is an account that has gone through several steps to prove that your personal or company's account is you and not a fraud. Previously, only celebrities, big brands, and public figures could apply to have their account marked as verified, but now you can too. Why is this a big deal? You get a blue checkmark badge (see below) on your profile to indicate the account is verified, so your Twitter followers know that you are who you say you are, and not an imposter or a fan who has created an account with your name or your company's name.
