Dangers of twitter copycat posters 🧵

Copycat accounts are scams, designed to trick and prey on the #fintwit community.

DON’T let it happen to you.
Be aware. I’m going to show you how it works!

I tracked my interactions with copycats. I documented it with screenshots.👇

These are the original accounts I have noticed this happening to:


Copycat created accounts subtly change the name, notice the extra (l)?


And copy the same profile picture

The copycat replies to a comment a follower has made on an original post. (Often way down the thread so the original account holder does not notice)

Clever right!

They invite the follower to join them on the telegram app.

A mandate for #backdoors to #encryption or originator #traceability does not fulfill the #Puttaswamy test and must be revisited.

#OriginatorTraceability mandate would result in practical complications for industry; become an obstacle to small businesses & #innovation; & the end product will be difficult to sell in the Int'l market. Such a mandate should not be implemented without further consultation.
