Renowned micro-blogging website Twitter announced that it is opening the blue checkmark to everyone. It has created an online application process for Twitter users to get the verified status. The blue tick mark actually displays the authenticity of the user of that particular Twitter handle. Till now, only public figures, brands and organizations were able to get the blue check mark in front of their names but from now onwards, everyone can claim for one, as said by Twitter.

To make things clear for everyone on who will be verified, Twitter said “an account may be verified if it is determined to be of public interest.”

“We want to make it even easier for people to find creators and influencers on Twitter so it makes sense for us to let people apply for verification,” said Tina Bhatnagar, Twitter’s vice president of user services. “We hope opening up this application process results in more people finding great, high-quality accounts to follow, and for these creators and influencers to connect with a broader audience.”
