Why GSMArena's Twitter account isn't verified

07 September 2021
Some fans weren't sure which is the right account to follow, since ours isn't marked as verified. Here is what happened.

Can we guys take a moment to appreciate what GSMArena does for the world. Making tech reviews that are fun, crisp and concise. And yes, who cares about Twitter verifications? Even the foolish of men and companies have verified handles. Legends must never mingle with them. Stay alone, stay unique. May this site and company run for years to come! Love you guys and your work.

I remember I started to get crazy about tech the same time I started checking GSM Arena almost everyday when I got my first high-end Nokia phone when I was 15. It was the Nokia N70 :). I was crazy for customizing phones, editing apps and testing IPs and Ports to get free internet. (Anyone remember the opera minis and uc browsers? :D)
You guys made me a nerd xd. Now, I am 30, I believe I still am one and I'm thankful for that! Because of you, I now work and make a ton of money doing nerdy stuff! haha

TLDR? proceed here:
Don't worry about Twitter. Nowadays, its just 50% porn, 30% twats, and the rest may be normal people. GSM Arena's the main reference anything phone-related imo.

Cheers!

GSM Arena is not an American company, and it demos too many "foreign" brands. That's where the shoe hurts for Twitter; they have a policy to promote pro-American sites, brands, awareness, and markets.

Oh my, Twitter have an agenda which is to suit themselves and any biased opinions are therefore going against their policy which contradicts what dribble comes out of their mouth.

You guys are the first and foremost for all things info on the mobile platform.

Chin up and fight the fight, gsmarea are fantastic.

Hey, let us know if we can help!! We can make it noted!!! Lets overload them :)

Does it matter even?, you are a legend. There might have been a mistake. They may rectify it in the coming days.

Hey Guys. After saying don't take it personally, you actually go on to explain why you are notable lol.
Twitter is in an essence a social media platform just like FaceBook. Both started around the same time. Who copied who is anyone's guess. Mr. Zuckerberg claims to a great inventor however we have all seen how he handles competition.
The point I'm trying to make here is that you guys shouldn't worry about Twitter or Instagram or TikTok making you famous or not. These are traditional media outlets. If you get mentioned in a big newspaper that should be in my view a more notable thing since you yourself are from that era. I do understand that acknowledgement from "new" media outlets would further cement your name however that shouldn't be the point.
I have been following your website/blog since a very long time when very few people were aware of it (at least in my county ). You have done a credible job since your inception. I personally feel you can do much better. Keep up the good work!
Thanks

B. Utts, 08 Sep 2021Yes, terrible people also exist on almost every online plat... moreHateful people are accepted by Twitter. I've seen blue checkmarks repeatedly post racist stuff, with no consequences. The thing is, what they posted was a corporate approved kind of racism.

why care, twitter is mostly a hate fest anyway, so, no big deal. your company is just one of the many millions that have not been verified. get over it.

oddly, if you start posting things such a orange man bad, and support for taliban murderers, then they might be inclined to then verify you. I am not joking.

Twitter verification is messed up anyway. Anybody can get verified as somebody in the past, so now they try to fix the issue.

  • Bro

For me i never used twitter or any social platforms to check your news. I immediately enter you website. You very known and famous without their need. Thank you Gsmarena staff.

Victor N, 08 Sep 2021152,000 followers are too few? Wow! How many does one need?thats the gsma fallowers and not what gsma fallows. As a tech site they should fallow all the mobile brands there is. Probably would get news from brands we pretty much never see in here and more news about brands we sometimes see in here but then these need to be really special and really stand out

What Free Speech your talking about ? It's not free speech if you get banned for having your opinion on some matters that dont match with others. in free speech there is 2 sides good and bad and both are accepted in free speech. there is no free speech when only the positive is accepted and all negative get banned.

Victor N, 08 Sep 2021Well, it is their platform and the have the right to do wit... moreYou can't act as publisher, which Twitter and Facebook are doing right now, while enjoying special protections meant for platforms. That's hypocrisy.

Hello GSMArena's Team!

I don't use Twitter but I have seen accounts with less than 1000 followers with the blue tick coz they are some Author, or some low level politician and what not. But I have never heard of these people. Anyways, as others said I check your website atleast once every 2-3 days, even if I had any social accounts I would still check your website!

If you want, I can help you take revenge on Twitter by terminating them from existence...FOREVER! 😈

Does GSM Arena need twitter? Do still enjoy this website but the environment is always toxic, I know twitter has a bad reputation as well, I wonder though if this has something to do with this
Just looking at T&C'S for posting comments and how often they are ignored.
no foul language, be polite and use common sense
No politics discussions.
No bashing - deliberately and repeatedly bashing the same brand
No trolling - deliberately antagonizing other brand/model users

B. Utts, 07 Sep 2021Most likely because they aren't bigoted racists?That's exactly why I think they should have one ...
