What does the blue checkmark by a name on Twitter mean?
 
I know most celebrities have the checkmark by their name, but an account named Michael Jordan just favorited one of my tweets and I doubt it's him, however it does have the blue checkmark by his name. It's not as bright as some as the other ones (like Woj).

Can anyone get the check by their name or what?

Means the account has been verified as "legit" by Twitter. Jordan would have people tweeting for him, but it's his official account, so it gets the checkmark.

Generally it's only for celebrities, but there's also a follower amount that's attached to it as well I think.
