(a.k.a. Verified and The Blue Checkmark) is a feature on Twatter and other social media hellholes that was originally designed to verify the identity of celebritard and business accounts so users wouldn't be tricked by the numerous impersonator and parody accounts that regularly tweet out fake news and Chinese cartoon porn.
Unfortunately, noone on Twitter was ever actually smart enough to make use of the feature – this, combined with the fact that Twitter's political bias resulted in 99% of verified users being cunty regressive libtards, helped to ensure that the blue checkmark would eventually become an aggressive form of Cancer that would turn Twitter into a radioactive sewage tank.
To top it all off, Twitter eventually opened up an application process for verification, unverified a whiny Conservative faggot named Milo Yianoloplolpolopoulos and then began verifying Al Jazeera-backed anti-Assad propaganda accounts that wanted to lure the entire world into World War 3 – so much for stopping the flow of fake news, Jack!
With the dawn of trolling, social networks realized that they needed a way to make sure that vicious internet trawlers couldn't fake their identity and pretend to be someone they aren't. HAHAHA DISREGARD THAT, I SUCK COCKS it's just another measure of the length of your E-penis.
Contrary to common belief you don't need a shit-ton of followers to gain the verification mark. You need to either become a journalist, a celebrity or simply just give Twitter a good amount of cash.
