My Friday night was spent like any other social manager: Checking out Peach. The new social app easily allows for creative status updates like drawings, gifs and songs. Friends have been hoping on quickly and sharing multiple updates. Meanwhile, I've enjoyed trying to verify the brands taking it for a test drive.

    I guessed this was verified, and it appears they are! The brand tweeted their username.

    Mashable TV brilliantly snagged @television. An employee confirmed this and @business are both their accounts.

    I can confirm this is real. Monday morning we could all be reminiscing about the time we tried and abandoned a new app in less than 24 hours. In the meantime, it's good to stake claim to your brand's username early.

    Update: An employee has confirm they are real, and they even created a list to confirm.

    Sure, NASA's first Peach post could totally be a charming joke. But the second and third? I don't think this is real.
  6. 41d0bd90 ffb3 46b2 bc4a a8136f5f0746
    Not likely real.

    5d68a76e 56ab 43c8 9cd9 a4044d8ed659
    Need more evidence to confirm this one... The brand is known to be quick to jump on trends. We'll see what comes next.

    While this has a professional voice, speaks to fans and has proper branding, it is not real. Here's what they posted: "FYI account not affiliated with National Geographic in anyway. Just a fan posting their beautiful pictures."

    Ceb2e58f ff7a 41b0 ae7a d888e3d3cd95
    Update: While there were promos on the account at first, it has now shifted to an angry rant. It's not real.

    This is not a brand, I know. But the person behind this accounts is on to something.
  11. 16fd92b6 830e 4317 9b44 578337a19992
    I'm going with no.
  12. @hottopic
    885c6c8e f392 45b7 97ca c9e0e1fd70b0
    Not real, but as a former shopper, it cracked me up.
  13. @dominos
    7d87f642 18af 49d2 949f 4ab696894063
    This seems to match their brand voice and includes and pitch to follow their Twitter account. I'm thinking there's a good shot this is real.
  14. 8105b23d fc4f 4721 91c3 a57178d31781
    Not actually Vice.
  15. @tmobile
    00177be1 45a6 4516 aeb2 b0a775f55b9f
    Appears to be legit or run by someone who knows a lot about their offers and messaging priorities. ag
  16. @thisisfusion
    3acbc7b5 76b7 4dca bccc d973019f395c
    Fusion also tweeted their Peach username from their verified account. They're legit.
  17. @proctergamble
    21c4d56d 8cd9 47ca 9d4d 24545da737b4
    Not real!
  18. @hotpockets
    Caa942ae 49fe 4110 addc e14b250fffbe
    Looks like it's probably a well-run fan account.
  19. @jcrew
    4ff8f516 cdec 48f9 8786 ef129b3265d5
    Due to the lack of brand-related posts, I'm calling this a fake account.
  20. @acehardware
    E9ca7f61 8133 4285 bd7f 87cd04ce252d
    Either this admin is building brand loyalty with hammer humor or this is fake.
  21. @bbcbreaking
    1acfa5c9 ed6e 4017 a703 1990c96e8ba3
    The lack of photos seems suspicious...
  22. @boingboing
    Fe654e0d 16dc 4e23 8d83 3a69e1522695
    Pretty sure this is not real.
  23. @cnnbrk
    D4d78d43 8991 478d b155 77688f8ab790
    It's not too far fetched to think the people who manage the real brk account would log on to secure their name. I was eager to see how'd they use it. But no. It's not real.
  24. @chicagotribune
    B56b0d55 ac51 482f b569 5880705a5597
    Confirmed by their social media manager to be real.
  25. 836dc5f5 df2e 4abd 849a e588d894b6b5
    Confirmed through a tweet posted on their account.
