Default Fake Impostor Twitter Accounts

Who do we know are not 'verified' on Twitter and claim to be NBA or Toronto Raptors players??? Any examples...

for example, Bargnani does NOT have a Twitter account...

Mehmet Okur does not either...

Okur currently in Istanbul, Turkey

And neither does Turkoglu (yet)

Turkoglu is in Italy with the Turkish National Team

Any others? Post here please...

Thanks.

I think it's best to assume it's fake unless a combination of conditions are met such as:

1) verified account by twitter
2) thousands of followers
3) legit accounts following other legit accounts
4) legit accounts giving shoutouts to their nba friends

Stuff like that should give you an idea if it's real or not.

moremilk: You should read some of their tweets... they (the 'fake' ones) give themselves away sooner than later...

for example, @Hedo_Turkoglu just made the comment he was not in Italy (when he is), and replied that Toronto asked him to return the Canada due to injury probability playing for Turkey.

I know for a fact that's not true!

Just one example. So have fun accordingly. I just don't understand what people gain by masquerading as someone else...

The 'real' celebs/pros get 'verified' stamps by Twitter...
