50,000 Verified Twitter Accounts – Infographic

Since celebrities discovered Twitter, many fake and parody accounts were created. When baseball manager Tony La Russa threatened to sue Twitter over one of these fake accounts, they decided to verify some accounts with the well known tick mark. The first verifications in 2009 were only for celebrity accounts, but when Twitter discovered that the verified status was very wanted, they made the verification also available for their commercial partners.

As the infographic shows also many relatively small accounts are verified. Some of the smallest verified accounts we discovered are @Change4US (13 followers) and @ita_nishidaij (21 followers).
