What if someone is impersonating me?

Last Updated: Sep 10, 2018 03:49PM PDT

Impersonation is a violation of the Twitter and Periscope Rules. Accounts portraying another person in a confusing or deceptive manner may be permanently suspended under the impersonation policy.

An account will not be removed if:

- the user shares your name but has no other commonalities
- the profile clearly states it is not affiliated with or connected to any similarly-named individuals.

Accounts with similar usernames or that are similar in appearance (e.g. the same background or avatar image) are not automatically in violation of the impersonation policy. In order to be impersonation, the account must also portray another person in a misleading or deceptive manner.

Users are allowed to create parody, commentary, or fan accounts. Please refer to the Twitter parody, commentary, and fan account policy for more information about these types of accounts.
