Ah, yeah; the big string of numerals, one of my criteria for whether or not to report an account as fake — along with not having anything in the bio, less than 100 followers, a join date less than a year ago, and a default generic avi.

@flugennock The point of my article is that it's not actually a very good criterion for reporting an account as fake, at least on its own! I agree that if all the things you list are true then it's worth some side-eye.

As I mentioned... a string of numerals in the username is only one of several criteria I use, along with the bio, avi, follower count and join date.
