We follow our favourite stars, celebrities, musician , singer , famous public figures and other notorious personalities on Twitter.But many of us are unaware of the fact that there are bunch of fake accounts of our favourite stars on twitter that seems to look real to us. But here are some of the best ways that can help you to spot a fake account of your favourite stars or other well-known public figures that you are following on Twitter.
Here are the steps to identify fake twitter accounts.
1.Just type the name of your favourite celebrity on your Twitter search box.Don’t write the full name just type few initial letters of your favourite celebrity’s name on the Twitter search box.Twitter will display all results with the name that you have searched.For e.g let’s say you type Amitabh and it displays all accounts that are starting with this name, but you will see that one account has blue verified badge besides “@SrBachchan” name.
2.But even after you find the account has blue verified badge besides “@SrBachchan” name you are still not sure that the account is real or fake.Because there are some header image facility in Twitter that allows you to insert the fake twitter verified badge logo at the appropriate spot where the real verified badge logo appears.This is actually done to fool people, so that when a user visits to the profile it gives them the impression that the account is verified.
3.To find if the account is real or fake, simply hover your mouse over the blue verified badge and you will see a pop-up message that tells you that the account is verified by twitter.
4. Another way that you can find all verified accounts is to simply type @verified in the Twitter search box.Twitter search will display all the verified account of celebrities, bands, musician or other popular stars that your friends are following.
