Recently a bunch of very obvious fake antifa-accounts have been created on Twitter.
Below I list those I’ve found that in some way currently claim to be antifa and I consider 100% certain to be both fake and with malicious intent.
Block and/or report them.
Also, please make sure to tell others, so they don’t think the accounts are genuine… as that could cause real problems.

Update(s), at the bottom of this post.
Revision 2, adds notification:
After those and other fake antifa-accounts were made well known, they and other newly created ones now use extremely obvious sarcasm, whereas many previously even copied the entire content of genuine antifa-accounts to seem legitimate.
In the cases of accounts that clearly to pretended to be legitimate, they seem to now in many cases have deleted the content that was obviously meant to mislead.
Considering this change, the purpose of the original post has been fulfilled… by them.
On those grounds, it does not seem beneficial to post further updates to the previous list here.
If the behavior changes again, that stance might change and this revision’s notification be replaced by other content.
May all your anti-fascist endeavors meet as unexpected success as this did!
