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!
After all, Jack only has one dad!!
