You know how in Twitter, accounts are "verified" so that people know that the account is the real deal?

Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has just announced that Nintendo will be doing the same thing with Mii accounts on the Wii U Miiverse. Although it is happening now in a limited fashion, it seems as if this practice will be more widespread.
