“…you need to spend a minimum of $15,000 ($5K over three months) in order to “buy” verified status from Twitter. Or you need to know someone who’s “in” with Twitter (read: spending ad dollars with them) who wants you or your business to get verified.”(But: see below for some “loopholes.”) This has also been confirmed by AdAge, which states “A Twitter Sales Rep Said Getting Verified Costs $15K.” Elsewhere, Twitter is quoted as saying:
“Twitter currently verifies government accounts, accounts at risk of identity confusion or impersonation, and a select number of business accounts for alpha testing.”
“…Please note: Twitter isn’t verifying business accounts yet unless they’re part of the alpha testing program. If you are part of the alpha testing program and your request was denied, please visit your business center page for more information.”
“Verification is something we offer our active advertisers meeting the $5K/month minimum spend associated with our Platform Partnership.”
“…If you were to re-visit Promoted Products further down the road and were able to meet that $5K/month minimum, this verification would be reinstated.”
“One way to receive verification is if you are being impersonated (i.e. celebrity, politician, etc). The other is if you are an active advertiser. When you are running Promoted Products, verification is a value-add similar to analytics and Brand Pages. Digital Trends (the name of the account that had been verified and then UNverified) received verification as an active and engaged partner on our ad platform. Since you are no longer advertising, you no longer have that value-add.”Twitter specifically says that their “…verified accounts program is currently closed to the public” and that they are “not able to accept public requests for verification.” But, “If you’re one of our partners or advertisers, please follow up with your account manager for details.”
“…we got [Sheen] verified through Twitter….We know a bunch of people at Twitter, and we reached out to them…”…but then Sean Garret of Twitter said this is specifically NOT true about Sheen. (I reached out to both for clarification. Hat tip to @Kim for drawing my attention to this.)
We’re also forming partnerships with local organizations—like chambers and small business development centers—and equipping them with free trainings and customized city materials to run workshops just like the one Marieshia attended in Garland. These local partners know the challenges for local businesses more than anyone—and they recognize the value of getting businesses online.
