Twitter launches its verification process again for everyone globally

You can now apply for Twitter's coveted blue badge again, but only if you meet certain requirements.

What you need to know

  • Twitter's verification process is live for everyone again across the world.
  • The application process is available only to notable individuals or groups in certain categories.
  • Twitter temporarily halted the application last month as it worked on improving the process.

Twitter has announced that applications for its verification program are now open to everyone globally. The application process was temporarily paused in August to allow for several improvements.

In a tweet, the social networking site said the application can now be accessed again via its Account Settings tab. Using your mobile device, including many of the best Android phones, you can head over to the left sidebar menu of the Twitter app and then choose "Settings and privacy." Within the Account section, you will see the verification request option.

Twitter promised late last year to relaunch the verification program for the public sometime in 2021. In December 2020, the company shared its final verification policy in preparation for that plan. Twitter started reinstating the program in May before its momentary suspension last month.

However, the coveted blue badge is not entirely made for everyone. Twitter noted that you must meet certain requirements before you can be verified as someone you claim to be. Here's what Twitter says in its announcement:

Verification is for notable people/groups within our eligible categories. If that sounds like you, you can apply to be verified from your account settings!

To qualify for the blue checkmark, you must be able to prove that you fit the criteria of any of the six categories such as government official, journalist, brand or business, and other notable names.

If your request to be verified is denied, Twitter lets you re-submit your application at least 30 days after receiving your rejection email. Otherwise, you should automatically see the verification badge on your profile.

The verification program was suspended back in 2017 when there was widespread confusion over what the program truly meant. It was deemed by many to be "an endorsement or an indicator of importance," Twitter said at the time.

How to watch season 18 of Grey’s Anatomy online from anywhere

After last season was cut short, Grey's Anatomy is returning to ABC with brand new episodes and we have all the details on how you can watch the longest running medical drama yet on TV or online. Just as ABC did with season 17 last year, the season 18 premiere of the show will actually be a two-hour crossover event with Grey's Anatomy spin-off series Station 19. While Grey's Anatomy tells the story of Meredith Grey, played by Ellen Pompeo, and the other doctors, nurses and residents at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, Station 19 follows a group of firefighters from the Seattle Fire Department. Based on the trailer for the two show's latest crossover event, after a Station 19 fire truck is hijacked, a patient needs to be brought on foot to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital for treatment. Last season of Grey's Anatomy saw Dr. Meredith Gray infected Covid-19 and while in a coma, many characters from past seasons of the show returned to visit her on a beach. Although Mere

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people, and the stock levels we've seen so far are tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we've seen them stay in stock is maybe 15 to 20 minutes (usually just a few minutes, though), and that's at random times, so finding one for yourself can be a truly difficult task. Sony warned that it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers are promising more are coming, and Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called it a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. After spending a few months with it now, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback . You'll definitely want to
