Verified accounts launched on Twitter in 2009, but there was previously no way for account holders to request verification.

Twitter said the verification application will be available globally later this week, offering as examples of potential verified accounts those in categories such as music, television, film, fashion, government, politics, religion, journalism, media, sports and business.
