3. Check Bio Section

You can tell if a Twitter account is fake by looking at its Bio or description because people often create fake accounts, and creativity is not their concern. So their Bio section looks too contrived or haphazard; fake Twitter accounts try to copy an actual account by making their profile photo a picture of an attractive man or woman or a celebrity.

Check Bio Section

Because it will make the account more attractive and attractive to those who stumble upon it; However, you won’t find their actual picture on their profile. So always check the Bio section because fake profile Bio contains unrealistic promises and stories.

4. Ask the Person Directly

Suppose your target person doesn’t have any other social media platform and doesn’t even mention their contact information on Tik Tok. In that case, there is only one thing you can do, which is directly asking the user for their contact number. But before asking the person, make sure you have a valid reason for asking for their phone number.

Ask the Person Directly

Otherwise, they won’t share their phone number with a stranger. If you want to talk about something professional, you can go for it and ask for his number directly.

Instead of asking for his phone number, you can ask for his Gmail ID to send them an email, and after having a good conversation, you can ask for his phone number.

5. Find From other Social Media

If you want to know if someone is using a fake Twitter account, you can check their other social media platforms if they are available. If the person is using LinkedIn, you can easily get his phone number because LinkedIn is a professional app; people share their details on LinkedIn, like phone number, Gmail ID, etc.


You can get your target person’s details from here and their Facebook About or Instagram Bio section if they don’t. Set their account private, then you will get their details from here.
