New features for verified users

Wednesday, 13 August 2014

Every day, people around the world use Twitter to keep up with live events, discuss their interests and create connections. Many of these people are public figures in areas such as politics, entertainment, journalism and sports.

Similar to how we help businesses make advertising simple and effective on Twitter, we occasionally build features that enable these public figures — verified users — to engage more easily with the world through Twitter.

For instance, we’ve addressed the large volume of conversations verified users often experience on the platform with notifications filtering. And today we’re beginning to roll out two new features to verified users on the Twitter mobile apps: alerts when another verified user follows them on both the Android and iPhone apps and the option to view their verified followers from their own profile on Twitter for iOS only. We hope these two features will help verified users easily connect with each other so we can continue to deliver those only-on-Twitter conversations to users.

We will continue to work with our media partners to make Twitter more engaging and easier to use.
