Twitter is testing a new profile badge for people who have verified their phone numbers

According to app analyst Jane Manchun Wong, Twitter is testing a new profile badge for users who have confirmed their phone numbers. On Tuesday, the company announced that it is testing a feature that “allows customers to add context to their profiles.

This might be done to make sure a user with the phone verification badge is a real person and not a bot. The company claims that this is one of the ways it helps customers obtain reliable information and offers additional details about different sorts of accounts. Further, it stated that only phone number verification with an opt-in setting is being tested at this time and that verification is simply one step in the process.

Who will see the badge or the test’s scope were not made clear by the corporation.
