@flugennock The point of my article is that it's not actually a very good criterion for reporting an account as fake, at least on its own! I agree that if all the things you list are true then it's worth some side-eye.
As I mentioned... a string of numerals in the username is only one of several criteria I use, along with the bio, avi, follower count and join date.

Not by that criterion alone, but it does make me want to dig further to check your account out — join date, avi, bio, masthead art, number of tweets, number of followers, and a look at your feed to see what else you've posted.
Nearly a decade on Twitter has taught me to be ruthless in that regard, for my own protection.
