Twitter Adds Age Verification For Adult Brands

Twitter is adding age verification for following "adult" brands. On a related note, there is no age verification for the kind of crap that takes place in the company's cafeteria. eek!

To give worried marketers peace of mind, Buddy Media has rolled out an age verification process for Twitter in partnership with the microblogging service.The idea is to reduce the liability of booze marketers and their ilk, though the process itself appears to be fairly porous. Buddy started offering the free service to adult brands such as liquor companies, but said it could be used for other industries with age requirements.
