Twitter suspends fake WV political accounts

The Democratic party complained about fake accounts, and Twitter shut them down. Accounts set up under the names of West Virginia Attorney General Darrell McGraw and state Sen. Walt Helmick were fakes, and they are no more. Twitter has also suspended at least three other accounts operated by West Virginia Republicans. Most of the accounts had just a few followers and hadn't sent too many tweets when they were suspended. If you want to know whether an account is the real deal, look for that little blue verified check mark.
