GOOD NEWS KIDS! Twitter is now giving you an opportunity to get your accounts verified! Yep, online application forms for Twitter verification have become available to ever single user on the social network site!
Previously, the Twitter verification system was only available to public figures and high profile organisations but yesterday, the platform that saw Khloe Kardashian fail to successfully drag Chloe Grace Moretz revealed they are opening it up to the entire user base!
An online form will now be available to everyone on the network and accounts “may be verified if determined to be of public interest”.
It's good news for bloggers, smaller YouTubers, freelancers and maybe even dedicated fans who run successful fan accounts. It's sadly not good news for anyone hoping for a blue tick just so they can to slide into Josh Dun's DMs. You need to actually prove that your account is of "public interest" and you're not just a troll with an egg for a profile picture. Soz.
