Twitter has announced they will allow anyone with an account to apply for verification, a feature that has only been available to those in the public eye.
Users can click on the following link and fill in a request form. https://verification.twitter.com/welcome
Twitter will respond to your request via email.
Thanks to @westr for pointing us to this article. However, “I tried the link and it would not accept my information,” he writes. “I’m not sure what that means. Maybe they’re swamped currently, or I do not qualify even though open to all.”
Are you able to succesfully apply for Twitter verification following the link?
