Verify Geeks of Color (GOC)

This petition had 324 supporters

Geeks of Color  is a community of Geeks that strives to be a leading voice for diversity and inclusion in all aspects of entertainment.

They have been there for us Geeks for a very long time providing reviews, interviews, blog posts, dissection of films, sneak peeks for upcoming films, they help call out Injustice within the industry as well as helps promote a healthy diversity within the media we digest everyday. They also attend press events, conduct interviews and provide valuable feedback on the entertainment we know and love.

This is a very simple overview of the amazing web that Geeks of color have created for all of us in the twittersphere, all we are asking is that you would acknowledge that hard work, the journalism and the dedication that goes into what they do by verifying this account. Very often you (twitter) use their tweets and information for creating moments (which highlights their page at times) so I'm a little confused as to why getting them verified has been proven to be such a difficult process.  

There are plenty of other accounts which honestly are not run by people of color that are very easily verified, some of them don't really deserve it.. but that's a another  conversation. (Reminder: we have white nationalists/supremacists who get to flash around the verified symbol, so whynot a Twitter dedicated to its fans of entertainment?) GOC is dedicated to providing the best information as well as the best discussions possible on the things that we love with a professionalism and passion that cannot be ignored.  Please do what is right, verify Geeks of Color on Twitter! Thank you.

 Ps: please be aware they also have a live tweets page too! ( @GocLiveTweets ) 

Here is a link for their website where you can further see the devotion to what they do.
