|Politics / Boko Haram Sacks Adamawa Governor'shometown by Whizkeey(m): 9:53am On Apr 27|
Members of Boko Haram have sacked the hometown of
Adamawa State Governor, Murtala Nyako, Mayo Belwa,
damaging a prison, police station and a bank.
The state police command confirmed the Thursday night
attacks but made no statement on the casualty figure.
This is coming a week after a clash between the Joint
Task Force in the North and Boko Haram militants left
187 people dead.
Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Ibrahim
Mohammed, confirmed the incident. He, however, could
not provide details.
Since the April 19 clash between the JTF and Boko
Haram in Baga, Borno State, at least nine policemen
have been killed in separate attacks in Borno and Yobe
The Commissioner of Police in Yobe State, Sanusi
Rufai, said five policemen were killed during an alleged
attack by Boko Haram terrorists in Gashua on Thursday,
while four other policemen were killed in Bama, a border
town in Borno State, the same day.
As at press time, only scanty details of the Adamawa
attacks had emerged.
Despite the amnesty plans for Boko Haram, for which
the Federal Government has established a controversial
committee, attacks in northern Nigeria continue.
The JTF in Yobe had on Thursday introduced an
extended curfew in Gashua.
The spokesperson for the task force, Lt. Eli Lazarus,
said at the time that the curfew would be between 6 am
and 1 pm.
Lazarus said the curfew was to enable the JTF to
continue with its ongoing cordon-and-search operation
following the attack in which the policemen were killed.
The Northern State Governors Forum on Friday
described the death of the policemen as a great national
loss, referring to them as heroes who died in the course
of service to their fatherland.
The governors expressed serious concern at the recent
attacks, appealing to the Boko Haram sect to give peace
Chairman of the forum and Governor of Niger State,
Babangida Aliyu, said in a statement signed by his
spokesperson, Danladi Ndayebo, "The renewed violence
in Borno and Yobe states negates all efforts to restore
peace to this region.

|Nairaland / General / Get A Verified Account On Twitter By @sirkeni by Whizkeey(m): 6:32am On Sep 06, 2012|
If you've seen that white checkmark in a blue
cloud on somebody's Twitter profile, that
means they hold a "verified account." Twitter
uses verification to establish the authenticity of
tweeters, and does so proactively—they
concentrate on "highly sought users in music,
acting, fashion, government, politics, religion,
journalism, media, advertising, business, and
other key interest areas." If you (or your boss/
client) fit the bill, here is how to go about
getting your Twitter account verified.
Tips and Warnings
Determine if you qualify for a verified
Twitter account . Twitter verifies as few
accounts as possible and only for legitimate
reasons. Reasons for asking Twitter include
being a highly recognizable public figure
(athletes, artists, public officials, public or
government agencies, etc.), or if your name
and likeness is parodied or impersonated on
multiple Twitter accounts, leading to identity
Though Twitter does not have an official
stance on this, several Twitter-verified
companies have indicated that spending
$5000/month on Twitter advertising will
also get (and keep) your account verified.
Twitter will not consider you for
verification based on your number of
followers. Twitter urges Tweeters to
"Please note that follower count is not a
factor in determining whether an account
meets our criteria for verification."
Twitter recommends embedding a
Twitter "Follow" button on your official
website as the best alternative to
verification. You can learn how to do this
here. This allows you to obtain followers
directly from your official site, which is
very helpful if there are multiple Twitter
accounts that use your name.
Twitter also recommends including a link
to an official website as an alternative to
Read the Verified Account terms. These
terms explain what a verified account is,
what it means to be verified, who has the
verified badge, identifying a verified
account, etc. They can be found here.
Find out how to apply for a verified
account . Send a direct message to this
address and be sure to have the following
Official website (you will be given a
suggestion to put the Twitter logo or
badge on your official website to speed
Bio information (information about
yourself in fewer than 160 characters)
Primary contact name (referring to the
individual who manages the account)
Additional Contact Information
Wait for Twitter to respond. If you don't
get a reply shortly, you can contact Twitter
by snail mail or through Twitter. Keep in
mind that Twitter deals with a high volume
of verification requests, and that it focuses
first on the most "highly sought users."
Follow Twitter's instructions for verifying
your account . If Twitter decides that you
qualify for a verified account, they will reach
out to you via direct message. Click the link
in the direct message to be taken to finish
The final part of the process has 3 parts,
Learn how to Tweet effectively, Connect
with other Interesting Twitter Users, and
Protect your Account.
Learn how to Tweet effectively gives
you a choice between 2 tweets and asks
you to choose which one is better. It
has the form of a quiz, but there will be
no negative effects if you do not answer
Connect with other Interesting Twitter
Users gives you the option to follow
other verified accounts. Twitter
believes that this gives you more
legitimacy as a verified user.
Protect your Account asks you to enter
a phone number that Twitter can call if
there are any problems with your
account. Once you have completed this
step, your account will be verified.
Do not change your account information.
Once you have received a verification badge,
it is important to keep your account
information the same. Changing information,
such as your profile image, can cause Twitter
to remove the badge, forcing you to contact
them again. FOLLOW @Sirkeni to get more followers
