How to tell if a new Twitter account is fake?
The number of fake Twitter accounts has been growing.
Here are some simple tips for identifying a fake account and determining its legitimacy.
(Monica Akhtar/The Washington Post)The number of false Twitter accounts is rising exponentially.
We’ve seen hundreds of thousands of fake accounts start popping up on Twitter this year.
They’re often run by fake Twitter users, fake accounts of verified accounts or fake accounts created to create confusion.
A lot of them are run by bots.
We’re getting a lot of complaints about bots.
So, in this case, we thought it was important to have a look at who created the account.
The fake accounts we’re looking at are accounts that are created in the U.S., Canada and the U.,K.A. accounts.
The fake account created in Canada in the past month was created by @matthewbrennan, an account that was suspended in May for violating Twitter’s terms of service.
In the U,K., the account @michaelbronnan was created in July and has since been suspended.
There’s a lot going on here.
For starters, many of the accounts are created with fake names and/or fake social media accounts.
Twitter also suspended @mickbronnie and @sarahbronno for violating its terms.
There are also accounts created by people who are not verified.
We don’t know who created them or how many.
The account @peterjones, for example, was created for an account called @jonesjohnson that has since become inactive.
Twitter suspended @jonejones for violating the terms of services.
And @jonedns was suspended from Twitter in [email protected] was created on Oct. 11, the same day Twitter suspended the account for violating terms of agreement.
@jONESjohnson was created the same month Twitter suspended that account.
@pokerjones is also the account that Twitter claimed was run by an unknown individual, but we’re not able to verify that account’s identity.
We can confirm that @jons_johnson and @pokersjones are fake accounts.
We have also been able to confirm that the account, @jonysonjones on Twitter, is a bot.
We haven’t verified this account as a bot, but since @jonnysonjons account was suspended, we have not been able for a long time to confirm it is.
We have also found that @penn_jonny is a user account that is suspended on Oct, 8, and has not been active [email protected] was created Oct. 9, but it has been inactive since Oct. 18.
It is unclear why @pENNjonny wasn’t suspended for violating our terms of account usage, as @pennyjohnson’s account has been active.
It is important to note that some of these accounts are active for weeks, months, or years.
In addition, some accounts are very similar to @penguinsjones.
This may be because the accounts were created to generate revenue for a certain group of people who use Twitter.
Twitter’s guidelines say it’s not a good idea to create accounts that you know are fake, and that people should be wary of all accounts they don’t trust.
