Is the Twitter account @realDonaldTrump a parody account, or is it actually controlled by Donald Trump?
Twitter places a "verified" checkmark on accounts that have gone through a review process and verified to be who they claim to be. @realDonaldTrump possesses this verification.
You'll also find major media organizations citing this account as his.
Not really sure, but based on the following, it seems a valid account:
- direct name account redirection: @donaldtrump redirects to @realDonaldTrump
- followers: almost 20M
- verified account sign: it's there (blue check near the name)
