And some accounts that are commonly mistaken for TED channels, though they aren’t:

@Ted: The personal and professional Twitter account for video editor Ted Severson, who’s been really nice about the occasional confusion.

@TED_Tweets: This channel looks legit, but it is updated by a fan rather than the TED staff.

@TED_Talks: Is this hand-updated by a fan or a robot? We don’t know.

@ted_com: Another account that looks official, but isn’t.

@RandomTEDTalks: TED-esque talk titles, generated by an algorithm from real TED Talks (with a few handcrafted headlines thrown in). Absolutely worth a follow.

@WhatTedSaid: The official Twitter account for the Seth MacFarlane film Ted. Sigh.
