A Fake Account of ValveSoftware appeared with a verification badge after Twitter Blue
Twitter recently introduced a new feature: a user can pay $8 to verify the blue badge. Many people criticised this move for a different reason, but the major issue with the new introduction is that scammers can quickly verify their accounts by paying $8 a month. As you might know, Twitter was recently bought by SpaceX founder Elon Musk.
After Twitter Blue's introduction, a new scammers account pops up in the gaming market. It goes by the Twitter handle of ValveSotfware, a fake account of Steam's company Valve. The original handle of the gaming company goes by ValveSoftware; if you haven't noticed, the fake account is misspelled by moving the "t" and "f" positions in Software.
Popular CSGO creator Gabe Follower found this fake account and posted.
The real Twitter handle of @ValveSoftware says when you click on the verification badge, “This account is verified because it’s notable in government, news, entertainment, or another designated category.”
And this is the fake account with the wrong spelling, @ValveSotfware which says, "This account is verified because it’s subscribed to Twitter Blue."
