Paul Bradshaw, a leading digital media expert and teacher in Europe, writes the Online Journalism Blog. In 2011, he wrote a post that provides a variety of basic guidelines about online verification with a section related to social media:
How long has the account existed? If it’s only existed since a relevant story broke (e.g. Jan Moir’s column; an earthquake where someone claims to be a witness) then it’s likely to be opportunistic.
Who did the person first ‘follow’ or ‘friend’? These should be personal contacts, or fit the type of person you’re dealing with. If their first follow is ReadWriteWeb, then it may be that you’re not actually dealing with a Daily Mail columnist.
Who first followed them? Likewise, it should be their friends and colleagues.
Who has spoken to them online? Ditto.
Who has spoken about them? Here you may find friends and colleagues, but also people who have rumbled them. But don’t take anyone else’s word for their existence unless you can verify them too.
Can you correlate this account with others? The Firefox extension Identify is a useful tool here: it suggests related social network accounts which you can then try to cross-reference. For companies the Chrome extension Polaris Insights does something similar for companies.

When Limestone College was established in 1845, it was the first women's college in South Carolina and one of the first in the United States. Founders Dr. Thomas Curtis and son, Dr. William Curtis, distinguished scholars from England, sought to provide educational opportunities to those who had not otherwise had them. In the late 1960s, Limestone became fully coeducational.
Limestone's campus is a unique landscape of history and progress.
Nine buildings on the main campus are included on the National Register of Historic Places plus Nesbitt's Quarry and Limestone Springs Baptist Church (previously owned by the College). All nine buildings have undergone major renovations. Although these historic buildings offer a picture of Limestone's past, they also house the modern technology necessary to make Limestone a liberal arts college with a view of the future.
Limestone College is an accredited, independent, coeducational, four-year liberal arts institution chartered by the state of South Carolina. Our programs lead to a Master of Business Administration, Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Social Work, Associate of Arts, or Associate of Science degree.
