Alan Page is a Pro Football Hall of Famer, a Minnesota Vikings legend, a former associate justice in the Minnesota Supreme Court and he even received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Trump, but despite his astounding lifetime accomplishments, Twitter doesn’t believe he has enough “notability” to be verified.
You read that correctly.
Page, 78, informed his over 16,000 Twitter followers on Thursday that his request to verify his account was not approved.
“This account will not be verified at this time because the evidence provided did not meet our criteria for notability,” the screenshot Page shared read. “As a result, we could not reliably verify that the account associated with the request is a notable person, organization, or brand.”

A nine-time Pro Bowler, Page is one of the best defensive tackles to have ever played the game. In 15 seasons, he played 238 games consecutively, registering 173 sacks – ranking eighth in NFL history. He also became the first defensive player to ever be named NFL MVP in 1971.
While playing for the Vikings, he earned his law degree from the University of Minnesota in 1978 and, just a few years after he retired from the NFL, he was appointed special assistant attorney general and eventually assistant attorney general.
Page continued his legal career and was soon elected associate justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court, where he served until 2015.
Page’s accomplishments also include extensive charity work, authoring four children’s books, and of course, being awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2018.
