Twitter tightened the guard conditions for blocking fake accounts

If the social network used to react only to the typical behavior of fakes, for e.g., to mass spamming, now it will pay attention to less obvious things. In particular, the signal for the recognition of a fake account can be:

  • using stock photos or photos of the other users;
  • using someone else’s profile description;
  • intentional misinformation: for example, an incorrect location.

In addition, if the fake account is detected, Twitter will reserve for the right to block other profiles of this user, even if they do not violate the regulations of the social network. Blocks will also be subjected to pages duplicating those that have already been noticed for breaking the rules.
