How to make a user verified with devise e.g Twitter verified or user tags to be specific.

Howdy, I am wanting to make my team have different tags on the employee account but I can't quite think of a way to get around this. For an example all Treehouse teachers have a user tag as Treehouse teacher. I want my team to have a tag of Blogger on the employee's account and other tags that my employee's position will be.

I am using Rails 4.

Thank you for taking the time to read my question and I would greatly appreciate the help!

I would make a user_role table with the roles (admin, user, writer, editor)

And give the User table a role_id column to reference the user's role. (1,2,3,4)

This give you the option to display the user's role on their profiles, as well as further authorization for your rails app.

With devise specifically there are other ways to do it.
