How to Verify your YouTube account

I have experimented with Twitch and recording my Destiny gameplay. I do this so friends can watch and just to play with the format.

Twitch can export video straight to YouTube but it requires a verified account to export anything longer than a 15 minute clip. Since the raid I recorded was 90 minutes, this was a problem.

So I asked The Great Sage, How do I verify my YouTube Account?
And it replied: https://www.youtube.com/verify

The process is surprisingly easy. Choose your home country then select whether you want an automated voice message or a text message with a code in it.

I received the text message immediately and entered it.
Congratulations! I now have a Verified YouTube Account™.
Now, to figure out what I can do with it.
