Here's how to get your own 'Verified' blue tick on Twitter

Were you the kind of kid who loved nothing more than getting a piece of homework back covered in neat blue ticks of approval?

We bet you had loads of mates, didn't you? 

Anyway, you'll be thrilled to hear that now you can show off the most prized tick of all to your friends (well, followers), as Twitter has launched an online application process that will allow any Twitter account to request verified status.

"Our goal with this update is to help more people find great, high-quality accounts to follow, and for creators and influencers," explains Twitter's Tina Bhatnagar, "no matter where they are in the world - to easily connect with a broader audience."

Here's how to apply to get verified.
