Not sure if the twitter is going to allow verification for all the people. There are plenty of fiverr and other places where people are going with those type of the tweets. But surely it is only given to the popular people. And that seems to be going a lot better lately. I have seen that people rarely get the identification option anymore. So it is more or less given to the people who are celeb. And are known for their work. So it's easy for twitter to verify.

I have been on Twitter since 2010, however, I heard of twitter verification only recently. Thanks for explaining how verification process works. I have my real photo, I have a bio, I have provided url of my website, I have confirmed my email, however, I have not confirmed my phone yet. I will confirm my phone number and submit verification form soon.

I know Twitter has been having lots of problems with fake accounts. But in my case, the Twitter Help folks have also had some one-on-one interactions with me. I've had to contact them to get other tweeters off my back! I never thought about having my Twitter account verified. You've been there longer than me. My profile shows that I have been active since 2012. I think after 6 to 10 years people shouldn't have any doubts about your genuineness and authenticity. If you gave people a reason I could understand. But if you've been there tweeting all along, what do folks think you're doing with your account?

I have half a dozen twitter accounts. and none of them are verified. My personal account has just about 600 followers. I follow about 400 accounts. Based on the difference between the followers I have and followers I follow, you can understand I am not following people in a hope that they will follow me back. I use facebook for promotion more than twitter. However, I also have twitter accounts for my websites.

As far as I'm concerned, Twitter is a great tool for quick posting or microblogging and especially for promoting your websites. I like that they expanded tweet to allow for additional characters. But I was fine with the 140 character limit. It's good either way. It used to be that I could automate my posts and share my tweets to Facebook. But Facebook stopped the interface. If you want to post to Facebook from your Twitter you have to manually share the link now. But still, I have no complaints. Verified or not verified, it's a tool that has helped me a lot and I'll keep my accounts as long as the Twitter owners let me keep them. I'm glad that they didn't make verification mandatory.
