How to Spot a Fake Twitter Account

If your mother says she loves you, check it out. ” – Chicago Tribune

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).

Use the incredible 100,000 tweets per minute to your advantage! If you also want to embed a Twitter widget on your website, don’t forget to take a look at this article.

    Do you find that your family holidays always leave you without your
    favorite electrical devices? If you are looking for a way to keep the
    family happy while you are on the road, perhaps a cigarette lighter
    adaptor is just the thing you need.

    An adaptor for your car will
    allow you to power all of your electrical devices with ease of use. Do
    you want to take your laptop with you on your next trip? Are you tired
    of running out of battery power when you are out for the day? Does your
    job require you to move around a lot? Perhaps you would benefit from
    being able to plug in and power up your devices wherever you are, even
    if you are stuck in traffic! If you think that this would be helpful to
    you, all you need to do is go to your local electronics store and
    purchase yourself a cigarette lighter adaptor. You will be able to take
    this and then plug it into your car cigarette lighter input.
