About Twitter Verified Organizations
Sign up for Verified Organizations here.
We’re creating the most trusted place on the internet for organizations to verify their affiliations and reach their followers.
Twitter Verified Organizations enables organizations of all types–businesses, non-profits, and government institutions–to sign up and manage their verification and to affiliate and verify any related account. Please see Purchaser Terms of Service for more info.
Any organization that purchases a subscription to Verified Organizations will receive a gold checkmark and square avatar if they are a business or non-profit, or a grey checkmark and square avatar if they are a governmental or multilateral organization. Learn more about profile labels on Twitter and what they mean.
In addition, organizations can choose to affiliate any Twitter account associated with them. An affiliated account receives verification (denoted by either a blue, gold, or grey checkmark) as well as an affiliate badge, a small image of their parent organization's profile picture, displayed next to their checkmark. Clicking or pressing this badge takes a user directly to the affiliated organization, making it a great driver of followers from your whole network on Twitter.
For example, a company can affiliate their leadership, brands, support handles, employees or teams. A government can affiliate its precincts, officials, or their other entities. There is no limit to the number of affiliates an organization can have, or who they can affiliate (as long as they are related). All vetted and approved government organization and government individuals accounts can receive a grey checkmark and affiliate badge if they sign up for Verified Organizations.
By subscribing, organizations can access our new tool to manage verification, meaning you have full control over your organization's presence on Twitter. You’ll be able to add and remove affiliated accounts at any time. Affiliates must accept an invite in order to receive verification.
A Twitter Verified Organizations subscription is $1,000/month and $50/month for each additional affiliate (plus any applicable tax) in the U.S. Prices may vary by region and are subject to change. Click here for pricing information.
Twitter Verified Organizations elevates and distinguishes organizations and their affiliates on Twitter. Gold and grey checkmarks, square avatars, and custom affiliation badges verify and differentiate you and your entities main account, spokespeople and subsidiary accounts. We will continue to improve our service and may change our features from time to time.
Twitter reserves the right without notice to remove your checkmark or other badging at any time at its sole discretion, including if you violate our Purchaser Terms, Terms of Service, and policies, or if your account is suspended.
Verified Organizations Portal
We’re launching an entirely new feature on Twitter that lets any Verified Organization sign up, manage their billing, and verify their network.
The Twitter Verified Organization portal lets organizations add and remove affiliated accounts and provides immediate verification status to anyone in their network who accepts their invitation to affiliate. This could be for new employees, a newly launched movie franchise, or recent team changes for professional sports groups.

The best marketing comes directly from real people on Twitter. Now, you can affiliate your organization’s champions so that everyone knows where they work. Affiliates receive a small image of their organization's Twitter account profile picture next to their name every time they Tweet, send a DM, or appear in search.
You can affiliate anyone who represents or is associated with your organization: leadership, journalists, sports teams and players, politicians, customer support, franchises, sub-brands, products and so on. An account you invite to affiliate must accept your invitation before they receive the affiliation badge.
Custom Organization Profile
Verified Organizations receive a number of customizations to their profile. In addition to gold checkmarks, businesses also receive a square avatar, clearly distinguishing them from other organizations.
All Verified Organizations accounts also receive a new tab on their profile that lists all affiliated accounts. This appears next to the Tweets tab and displays any affiliated accounts.
With affiliation badges and the affiliation tab, this makes it easy for visitors to click on the badge of an affiliate, arrive at the organization’s profile, and see all the other affiliated accounts in one place.
All Verified Organizations and their affiliated accounts are defended against impersonation. Accounts are monitored for changes (including display names, profile photos, and usernames) and flagged for further review if impersonation is detected.
In addition, all Verified Organizations have access to Premium Support which enables you to quickly escalate any critical issues.
