FYI - fake creator accounts on Twitter
Posted 11 July 2018 - 11:17 PM
Over the last week or so, someone or a group of someones has been going around on Twitter creating fake accounts that are meant to resemble the legit pages for various comics creators.
The first wave of these fake accounts were trying to solicit either donations or sales, with tweets claiming that they needed the money to fund side projects and the like.
The second wave of accounts were trolls deliberately posting inflammatory material in order to start fights.
Most of these fake accounts are pretty easily spotted if you're paying attention (for example, the "member since" bit will display the current month rather than the day the real creator created their real account), and people are reporting them as quickly as they're discovered.
But until Twitter gets a handle on everything, you'll need to be careful.
