Sure, fake news runs rampant now more than ever—but don’t let it distract you from another threat: fake Twitter accounts. 

When Donald Trump tweeted his appreciation on Saturday to a “supporter” named Nicole Mincey/@protrump45, Twitter user @Rschooley debunked the account’s identity, explaining in a thread exactly why “Nicole” and a variety of other Twitter users were in fact fakes, not actual Trump supporters. 

Buckle up—this gets interesting. 

So the person Trump retweeted today that’s accused of being a bot. She joined Twitter in January, a full blown Trump believer.
