What is a blue tick?

The coveted blue tick on Twitter accounts is reserved for prominent user accounts from six distinct categories: government; corporations, brands, and non-profit organizations; news organizations and journalists; entertainment; sports and esports; activists, organizers, and other influential...

What does "tick" on Twitter mean?

A blue check mark next to an account name shows that Twitter has taken measures to guarantee that the account belongs to the person or organization that it claims to represent. A green checkmark indicates that an account is verified.

What does a blue tick mean on Tinder?

Tinder's blue tick indicates that the profile with a blue checkmark has been validated as genuine by Tinder's community staff. This function will safeguard Tinder users from potentially insulting messages from fraudulent accounts, as well as persons who look nothing like the people in the photos, from showing up on dates.

The validation process works as follows: After you create a new profile, you'll be shown a list of other valid profiles created by other users. These are called "matches". You can then choose to message them first. If they accept your request, then both of you will be shown as available for date requests in the future. If they don't, then they're not interested in meeting anyone new at this time.

Tinder uses a strict privacy policy and doesn't share any information about its users with third parties. All interactions between users are private and only seen by the respective participants. However, some details about a user's account may be visible to them after deleting their profile. For example, if a user deletes their photo, then it will no longer appear on other users' matches lists.

A blue tick also appears next to the username of verified journalists on Tinder News. This ensures that what they write is from a trusted source and isn't fabricated content designed to drive traffic to the writer's profile.

How is the blue tick verified on Twitter?

Twitter, the microblogging service that is always experimenting with new features, has announced plans for its new rules on how users are "verified" on the platform. Twitter has committed to overhaul this section after receiving a lot of criticism and misunderstanding about its now-famous "blue tick-mark" – something sought on the network. The feature was created to indicate that someone has been approved as an official user of the service by Twitter itself.

Verification used to be required of only prominent public figures, but in April 2015 it was made available to any user who requested it. Now, this option is being made more accessible yet again by introducing new guidelines designed to make verification clearer and less subjective. Starting on September 20, all applications will be required to show the blue tick next to the username of every user they follow. Only those users who have been approved by their peers will be able to display this symbol. No one will be able to claim another person's identity without their permission.

The new rules come just over a year after Twitter introduced another change that caused controversy among some users: blocking by gender. Under the new system, people will be able to select from four options: male, female, genderqueer, or other. Users will then be able to decide which categories they want to appear in when they log in to Twitter. If they don't choose anything, they will be listed as male.

Why do some people have a blue tick on Twitter?

The blue "verified" symbol on Twitter indicates that a public-interest account is genuine. To be eligible for the blue badge, your account must be genuine, prominent, and current. It can't violate other rules we establish when verifying accounts, such as not having been used to send spam or sell products or services.

Who can apply for a blue badge? Only natural persons (i.e., humans) are allowed to apply. However, if you're a company who wants to verify its own account, this is possible. Further information can be found on our help center page for brands and businesses.

What does the blue badge look like? It's a blue check mark next to a user's name. When you hover over it, it says "This person has verified their identity."

Why should I believe a person who has a blue badge? Because they were approved by us, that's why! The blue badge is only proof of authenticity, however, so if you see someone claiming to be someone else on Twitter, you should still follow the instructions in our guide on how to identify fake accounts.

Are there any other ways to prove your identity on Twitter? Yes, there are several methods available for proving your identity.
