Organizations, meanwhile, can get a more useful checkmark. Twitter started accepting applications for gray checkmarks that verify government officials and organizations. In this case, the criteria are stricter — applicants must use either a government ID or a valid email address, along with a description of their job title and function.
Companies can now apply for golden checkmarks.
On April 1st, we will begin winding down our legacy verified program and removing legacy verified checkmarks. To keep your blue checkmark on Twitter, individuals can sign up for Twitter Blue here: https://t.co/gzpCcwOpLp
