Asked in Twitter
What does the blue checkmark mean by your name on twitter?
March 17, 2011 11:40AM
It is typically found next to celebrities names. It means their account is verified. Since anyone can create a Twitter account with any username, some people try to immitate celebrities. So, if you find Taylor Swift or the Jonas Brothers on Twitter and they have a blue check mark next to them, then it is really their Twitter. If you see a Twitter that says they are them, but there's no checkmark, then it's just someone trying to immitate them.
