Twitter founder Jack Dorsey’s parents on quest to get verified


@verified you should verify me I'm jack's dad.

— Tim Dorsey (@Tim535353) April 9, 2013

@marciadorsey: Twitter I'm not @verified…. Should I be?” If @jack’s mom isn’t verified, I have no chance.

Word spread on Twitter today that even the microblogging pioneer’s parents haven’t earned the coveted blue “Verified” check mark.

No way? Way!

Jack Dorsey’s dad, Tim, was tweeting lightheartedly last night:

Obvious it's not & he only has 1 dad! “@michaelcalhoun: Is it that easy "@Tim535353 @verified you should verify me I'm jack's dad."”

— Tim Dorsey (@Tim535353) April 9, 2013

Maybe you could lead the campaign “@michaelcalhoun: For my verification. @Tim535353 @verified you should verify me I'm jack's dad.

— Tim Dorsey (@Tim535353) April 9, 2013

Thanks! Need campaign mgr @missypinkerton: Hey, @verified this is @jack's dad RT @Tim535353: @verified you should verify me I'm jack's dad.

— Tim Dorsey (@Tim535353) April 9, 2013

Are to building a campaign strategy for the verification? “@publiceyestl: @Tim535353 @missypinkerton @verified @jack @verified You rang?”

— Tim Dorsey (@Tim535353) April 9, 2013

Yes I need verification. “@bwahby: @Tim535353 @publiceyestl @missypinkerton @verified @jack @verified tim ur @jack's dad!? Omg”

— Tim Dorsey (@Tim535353) April 9, 2013

Thanks yr support “@MayorSlay: @jack Success hathousand fathers. Very confusing. That's a good reason to @verify the real @Tim535353. #fgs

— Tim Dorsey (@Tim535353) April 9, 2013

Heh:

.@jack's parents may be holding him hostage. He hasn't tweeted today and they both are wanting to be verified. @marciadorsey @Tim535353

— Jim (@stljv) April 9, 2013

Papa Dorsey tweeted directly to Twitter CEO Dick Costolo:

Please @dickc@MayorSlay: @jack Success has a thousand fathers. Very confusing. That's a good reason to @verify the real @Tim535353. #fgs

— Tim Dorsey (@Tim535353) April 9, 2013

And the quest continued through the day:

— Sam Levin (@SamTLevin) April 9, 2013

Word spread to the Riverfront Times:

We made the RiverfrontTimes Blog @marciadorsey soon @verified. Read the Blog its fun!Even have @MayorSlay behind us! http://t.co/jbbWknuJ62

— Tim Dorsey (@Tim535353) April 9, 2013

Parents of Twitter Co-Founder Jack Dorsey, St. Louis Native, Launch Campaign to Get Verified http://t.co/orgXsZ6XFV

— Riverfront Times (@RiverfrontTimes) April 9, 2013

Twitter supporters kept up the campaign:

..Not sure why @jacks's parents @Tim535353 @marciadorsey don't have the #bluecheckswag by being @verified but they are NO doubt his parents

— heykim (@heykim) April 9, 2013

…when @jack says @Tim535353 @marciadorsey are his parents – that's good enough for me …

— heykim (@heykim) April 9, 2013

Jack Dorsey's parents desperately want to get "Verified" Twitter status. All I can say is, join the club! http://t.co/heraNLA2r2

— Jay Yarow (@jyarow) April 9, 2013

Dorsey’s mom, Marcia, weighed in:

You may not be verified, but now the morning is! RT @marciadorsey: Good Morning! pic.twitter.com/BaBTEHw0KN

— Richard Callow (@publiceyestl) April 9, 2013

#BOOM❗ RT @marciadorsey: AND I really am @jack's mom….

— heykim (@heykim) April 9, 2013

No word from Dorsey yet. His last several tweets have been focused on Twitter App Vine:

Congrats to the Vine team! Number 1 on the App Store! pic.twitter.com/tkKNwuFp9V

— Jack (@jack) April 9, 2013

Goodbye, San Francisco. https://t.co/Wk9sLCsRW7

— Jack (@jack) April 9, 2013

Maybe Mr. and Mrs. Dorsey should Vine their  verification requests?

@marciadorsey: @Tim535353 to me… "Wait, I'm going to Vine this… Don't talk'”

— Tim Dorsey (@Tim535353) April 8, 2013

Stay tuned.
