Well, there are established channels that Antifa communicates on like https://itsgoingdown.org. Also, talking to people who are doing antifascist work irl will help connect you to what can be trusted.

Also, the fash almost always use the accounts with the purpose of creating strawmen to rile up their crowds, so there are often obvious signs. Maybe we should put a guide together about how to identify fake accounts (not just a list of verified accounts), if there isn't one already.

Yeah fash can't hide who they are very well, but feds have been pretty successful at it, even being in relationships for years while undercover.
