Twitter recently introduced a new feature called “Verified Organizations” which allows organizations and their affiliates to distinguish themselves on the platform. This feature is designed to help prevent impersonation and improve the overall integrity of Twitter.
According to Elon Musk’s recent retweet, organizations are highly recommended to sign up and validate their affiliates to prevent impersonation. This is especially important as Twitter has faced criticism in the past for its verification process, which relied solely on Twitter to determine which accounts should be verified.
With Verified Organizations, vetted organizations that sign up for the program are in full control of vetting and verifying accounts they’re affiliated with. Affiliated accounts will receive an affiliate badge on their profile with the organization’s logo, and will be featured on the organization’s Twitter profile, indicating their affiliation.
Twitter has already seen various organizations, including sports teams, news organizations, financial firms, Fortune 500 companies, and nonprofits join Verified Organizations and list their affiliated accounts publicly on their profiles. The program has already proven to be successful, and starting today, Verified Organizations are available globally.
All organizations are vetted before they can join Verified Organizations. This means that interested businesses, nonprofits, governments, and multilateral organizations around the world can join the waitlist to be approved for Verified Organizations.
In conclusion, Verified Organizations is a significant step forward for Twitter in terms of improving the overall integrity of the platform. By allowing organizations to vet and verify their affiliated accounts, Twitter is taking a proactive approach to preventing impersonation and creating a safer and more secure environment for users.
