How to Trick Your Twitter Followers into Thinking You're Verified (By Hacking Your Header Photo)
Have you ever wanted to be famous? Of course you have! Now you can make your Twitter profile look like it's verified, just like professional skater Lil' Wayne. With Twitter's new header, you can now upload a cover photo onto your profile to be seen online and on mobile devices.

The above images are around 520 by 260 pixels, but Twitter recommends the dimensions be 1200 x 600 for decent quality, so the verified icon doesn't look too blurry. To make your own custom one, just open up your background photo wanted in Photoshop (or whatever) and resize it to 1200 x 600, then insert the Twitter verified logo at the appropriate spot and save.
"Misuse of Twitter Badges: You may not use a Verified Account badge or Promoted Products badge unless it is provided by Twitter. Accounts using these badges as part of profile photos, header photos, background images, or in a way that falsely implies affiliation with Twitter will be suspended."
So, be careful. They could possibly ban ya.
