“Spot the Troll” response

I just took the quiz from The Clemson University Media Forensics Hub called “Can you Spot the Troll?” and I am shocked at how real some of the trolls can appear. I thought that I would be able to answer most of the questions correctly, but I ended up only answering half correctly. Some of the accounts that I thought were legit were very similar accounts that I had seen on online before, and I am now realizing that they were trolls. I definitely feel that I am able to detect trolls much better now as a result of this quiz. I would encourage everyone to take it, because the account that just upset you on social media is more likely to be a troll than you think.

It is freaky how some troll accounts can seem so real, but I think playing this game helped me strengthen my skills in being able to spot one.
