    Celebrities on Twitter get a blue check mark to verify that their account belongs to the actual celebrity.

    Alas, our Lord British does not have a blue checkmark!

    Twitter does not take requests or applications. They verify celebrities as they trend.

    I would like to invite all SotA people to go follow Richard Garriott on twitter.
    https://twitter.com/RichardGarriott

    Please use #LordBritish or #verifylordbritish whenever possible, and let's see if we can get the rest of the world to take notice!

    @Berek Also, it would help verify that he is the real Lord British if there was a link on this site to his Twitter account. Can we do that, please?

    Thanks in advance!

    The same goes for me, and I already did post a tweet to #VerifyLordBritish .

    Do retweets count for trending on Twitter?

    EDIT: I found the answer myself, which is:
    Retweeting Counts as a Tweet But is Not Included For hash Tags Tho you have to Make your Own Post of that Tweet and Use The Hash Tags in Order For it to Count

    That should do it, @Mata .
    I'm thinking we could copy each other's tweets, sending them as our own (no ReTweets or RT in them) and as long as the hashtag #VerifyLordBritish is in the tweet, it should count to get him trending.

    This is a good page to read:
    https://support.twitter.com/articles/119135#

    Verified accounts do have access to extra features!

    If you yourself are interested in getting verified then:
    QUOTE:
    Besides verification, how can I show my account is authentic?
    Linking to your Twitter profile from an official website is the easiest way to confirm the authenticity of your Twitter account.
