How to Spot a Fake Twitter Account

As Twitter is full of “official” sources, it’s also full of trolls and false accounts. If you use a fake account as an official one, you can cause the reputation of your site or blog to hit rock bottom (from which it may never recover). I’ll give you 3 tips to avoid these sources of toxic information:
- Accounts belonging to celebrities, institutions and companies often have a verified account on Twitter. This usually happens when there are several accounts with the same name or meet some of the criteria in these FAQs about verified accounts.
- Verified accounts have a blue checkmark and when you hover over it, you’ll see “Verified account”.
- Compare the language and content of the messages: There are often cases in which false accounts are written in a different language than the person they try to pass as. Or also when checking past tweets, you may see messages with suspicious recommendations.
- Read the account descriptions carefully: you’ll often find out why they are using the name of a celebrity (fan clubs, foundations, etc).
