Preparing Your Twitter Account Before Submitting The Verification Application

It is no news that the blue checkmark badge which is a a symbol to show that your account have been verified by Twitter is very important if you intend to use the Twitter account for your brand and company because it shows your followers and potential that the account they are connected via Twitter is credible and indeed belongs to the brand that claims to have.

But this does not mean that account verification is not also important if you are using your Twitter profile personally and not for or as a company. I am not intending to outline to importance of getting your Twitter account verified using this post, rather I want to help you know what you need to do before you go ahead to and submit your application for your Twitter account to be previewed and then verified. So let's get on with it.

Your Name: You see, the whole ideal of verifying a Twitter account to prove the account's authenticity. So the first thing to do while preparing your account is to use your name, be it your brand's name or your given name.
This name should also be the name that identify you in the other online platform you are to provide to Twitter when filling the verification form.

Contact: you tel as well as your email address should have already been added to your account and verified before you go ahead to submitting the Twitter account verification application.
Also you Location should be constant and changing indiscriminately. I do not mean the location you add to your individual tweets, I mean the account's location as specified in your Bio.

Image Identity: the image you use as your profile picture and header picture for the Twitter account you which to submit the verification application should be large and clear.
Twitter recommends a profile image size of 400 x 400 pixels, and a header image dimension of 1500 x 1500 pixels. The image as the dimension shows should be large and clear not blurry and most importantly, it should be unbranded especially your profile image.
That is the image should not be the one another already verified Twitter account is using.

Your Bio: your is like your C.V. without a good C.V. you mess up your chances of being called for a job interview talk more of getting the job, same is true with your Twitter account bio. Mess it up and mess up your chances of being verified by Twitter when you submit the verification application to them.

Account Activity: an inactive Twitter account will never get verified, so before you submit that application, make sure that the account is active, thus tweet as many times as you can, but often enough for the account not to be labeled as inactive. Retweeting might also help.

If you can do all this before you submit the Twitter verification application, you will be certain to to re-submit it again.
