First fake profiles of celebrities revealed

-

Eight dollars for the blue hook: Fake profiles of celebrities, including LeBron James and Donald Trump, immediately surfaced on Twitter.


Despite the threat of ban, some Twitter users created fake accounts with famous names after the verification system was changed. Since the change, subscription customers have been given the previously coveted validation token. This was directly abused for misleading posts.

It was announced on Wednesday through his account that basketball star LeBron James allegedly wanted to leave the Los Angeles Lakers. It was easy to believe that the account was genuine: there was the familiar white checkmark on a blue background next to the athlete’s name, and the account name was confusingly similar: “@KINGJamez” instead of the real “@KingJames”. The account has been blocked – but only after getting more attention before.
