The Twitter community is rife with people with a history of making questionable accusations and lies.
But how do you tell the difference between one that’s a genuine scammer and one that just made up a lie?
We spoke to a Twitter user who had just left Twitter, and he explained the difference in how people interact online.
First of all, don’t click on a link that looks legitimate.
Twitter says that you need to verify that the message is authentic.
The problem with that is that most people don’t do that, and sometimes they don’t even click on it.
Second, don “unfollow” people.
People that you don’t follow can often be just as dishonest.
When you do “unfriend” someone, you make them think that you are actually their friend, which is actually not the case.
And the second you delete someone’s account, they can easily rejoin and start using the same tactics.
If someone has already been following you, it’s probably best to “unblock” them and/or “unlike” them.
If they haven’t followed you, or liked you, you can’t “unmark” them either.
And then, most importantly, don�t follow someone who’s been following or liking you for at least the past three months.
The second best way to tell the truth about someone is to look at their bio.
Twitter allows users to see what other people have written about them, but it can also show your real name, your real age, your occupation, and other details that you might not want to know about someone.
If you see someone that seems to be trying to scam you, don���t click on that link.
Instead, check out their bio and see if you can spot any mistakes.
There are plenty of fake accounts out there.
But when you’re on Twitter, there is always something wrong.
When it comes to fake accounts, the people who are responsible should be held accountable.
