Anil Dash gives a glimpse behind the curtain on what its like to have your Twitter account become ‘verified.’
First, you wake up on a day that seems like any other day, but then, out of the blue: It’s a direct message from the mysterious @verified account! It says “We at Twitter would like to verify your account. Please click this account and follow the instructions.” and then gives you a link to a little guided setup process. I got this on my mobile phone, and wasn’t surprised to find out the whole thing works just fine on an iPhone.
