Twitter is strange when it comes to business accounts

I created my company’s Twitter account, called  @EndpointCS .

Obviously, I tried to add the birth date of the company: 1.1.2015.

Well, imagine what happened next with my brand new account: it got locked because the owner of the account must be at least 13 years old. And my company is only 6 years old.

I had to submit a photo of my ID in order to get it unlocked.

Fortunately, and very surprisingly for me, the process took a few minutes. Did they automatize it ? I think so… otherwise it couldn’t have been so fast.

 

So, Twitter, get your processes straight.

In  case you’re wondering, there is no official way to set up a business account. You still need a person to create it and mark it as such.

And that person must be 13 years or older. 🙂
