Why do you want to be verified

Posted on

So Twitter is allowing anyone be verified, all you have to do is fill a form. You are also required to have a profile picture, a valid birthday and more. Finally in 500 words or less you are required to say why you want to be verified. I couldn't resist, this is the abridged version of what I sent:

Ever since I was a little boy, I've always dreamed of having a blue tick next to my Twitter profile. Coming from a small town in the middle of nowhere, it really meant a lot to be able to stand out from the crowd and be original. Nothing says original like a blue tick next to your Twitter name, It says I respect you my bro, you're original.

Ever since I was a little boy, I've always dreamed of having a blue tick next to my Twitter profile. Coming from a small town in the middle of nowhere, it really meant a lot to be able to stand out from the crowd and be original. Nothing says original like a blue tick next to your Twitter name, It says I respect you my bro, you're original, you stand for something, I think I might follow you to stay connected, to make a difference in the world because there are only two kinds of people in the world: those who are verified and those who are not and you my friend are VERIFIED. CERTIFIED. ORIGINAL. xoxo

I honestly don't care if I'm verified or not. But it would be cool.
