Abstract: Millions of users are engaged with social networking sites around the world. Social sites like twitter, Facebook have a large impact on rare unwanted consequences caused in our regular life in user’s interactions.

Twitter is main example that has become one of the important platforms for unreasonable amount of spam in all the tomes for fake users to tweet and promote websites or services that crates a major effect for legitimate users and also it disturbs resource consumption. By resulting the opening for unusual and harmful information there is an increase of fake identities that expands invalid data. Research on current online social networks (OSN) is quite natural for detection of fake users on twitter. In this paper using random forest classifier and ROC curve to detect fake users.
