Why GSMArena's Twitter account isn't verified

GSMArena team, 07 September 2021

We have had an official Twitter account since 2010 and many of you already follow it. However, we still occasionally get asked “Is this the official account? Why doesn’t it have a blue check mark?” Yes, this is the official account, but the second question is tougher to answer.

We tried to get the account verified, but Twitter messaged us back to tell us we don’t meet the notability requirement. Ouch, we’ll try not to take it personally. GSMArena.com has been online since the year 2000 (that’s 6 years before Twitter was founded). Also, there are thousands of links on Wikipedia pointing back to our database. But none of that is notable enough, apparently.

Anyway, if you want to follow us on Twitter, @gsmarena_com is the right account. That is only one way for our fans to stay up to date with the latest developments in the mobile world, you can also find us on YouTube (this account is verified, btw), Instagram and Facebook. We even have an RSS feed (yes, we’re that old) as well as more modern solutions like an Android app.
