Allows you to filter for Retweets of Tweets by authors whose accounts have been verified. The verification process typically applies to individuals and organizations in the public eye, and serves to confirm that the person really is who they claim to be. For example, if you visit Lady Gaga's Twitter page, you'll notice a white checkmark over a blue cloud next to her name. This is Twitter's icon for a verified account.


  1. Filter for Retweets by verified users who have more than 100,000 followers:

    twitter.retweeted.user.verified exists and
    twitter.user.followers_count > 100000

  2. Filter for Retweets from verified users with "official" in their username:

    twitter.retweeted.user.verified exists and
    twitter.user.screen_name substr "official"


  1. This target is an integer. If the account has been verified, twitter.retweeted.user.verified is set to 1.

  2. If the user is unverified, the target is not populated.

  3. DataSift offers three similar targets that help you to filter for content by verified users:
twitter.user.verified Filter for Tweets by verified users
twitter.retweet.user.verified Filter for Retweets by verified users. The author of the original Tweet might or might not be vertified.
twitter.retweeted.user.verified Filter for Retweets of Tweets by verified users. The Retweeting user might or might not be verified.
