Twitter Rolls Out "Verified Accounts"

Twitter ( has now rolled out some Verified Accounts.

"To prevent identity confusion, Twitter is experimenting (beta testing) with a 'Verified Account' feature. We're working to establish authenticity with people who deal with impersonation or identity confusion on a regular basis. Accounts with a Verified are the real thing!"

You can find an example of a Verified Account at

As I opined before (Berman Post: Twitter to Roll Out 'Verified Accounts'); this should efficiently bolster the credibility of the verified accounts but may also reduce the credibility of people/accounts who are not considered important enough to be verified or are lower on the verification list while they are waiting their turn.
