Parents of Twitter Co-Founder Jack Dorsey, St. Louis Native, Launch Campaign to Get Verified
St. Louis residents Marcia and Tim Dorsey would like to get "verified" on Twitter through the website's official badge of authenticity (that little blue check next to a user's name).

Twitter generally reserves those verifications for well-known movie stars, politicians, athletes, etc. -- but these two are arguably quite deserving.
After all, they're the grandparents of Twitter.
That's right: Marcia and Tim, the parents of Twitter cofounder and St. Louis native Jack Dorsey, would like the site to verify their accounts.
And they're tweeting up a storm to promote the cause!
Tim made the case quite succinctly:
@verified you should verify me I'm jack's dad.— Tim Dorsey (@Tim535353) April 9, 2013
After all, Jack only has one dad!!
And Marcia's request was just an innocent question:
Twitter I'm not @verified....Should I be?— Marcia Dorsey (@marciadorsey) April 9, 2013
