Michael Jordan the basket ball player? Are you sure? do you know what a Verified Twitter account is? Is this particular "Michael Jordan" verified as THE Michael Jordan by Twitter w/ a little blue checkmark next to his name?

If not, its probably not who you think it is.

Thats good. Because yea: Its really easy to change your twitter "display name" to whatever you want, so there are lots of spoof 'celebrity' accounts on twitter, that aren't really who they say they are. So you either have to know: The celebrity's actual "username" (not just their display name), or you can go to twitter.com and verify the person has a little blue checkmark next to their name. This mean's Twitter actually reached out to the person, and verified their identity. This service is only available to celebrities and major public figures.
