What Does That Blue Check on Twitter Actually Mean?

This post has nothing to do with entrepreneurs, but since my Reinventing the News class is learning about Twitter this week, I thought I would share this interesting article about how celebrities get their Twitter account’s verified.

I always wondered how the people behind the scenes at Twitter knew that the celebrity account was actually linked to celebrity. And apparently, the process is a secret. Yet some celebrities, like Britney Spears, have apparently called up the Twitter personnel to get themselves verified.

This makes me a little bit weary about the validation of these little blue check marks! I guess we just have to trust the world of Twitter!
