Since April 2013, there are now 50,000 verified accounts on Twitter. A verified account means that Twitter has checked that the specific accounts belongs to people or organizations they say they are.
Having a verified account surely means you will get more followers, ad the below infographic shows that amost 85% of verified accounts have at least 1K followers and more than half of them have over 10K followers.

Finally, we should keep in mind that these verified account count for only 0,005% of all existing Twitter accounts ;)
