Legitimate websites do not register their domain names for a minimum of year, scammers usually do this. They do it because they know that they will be discovered soon, so it doesn't make sense registering the domain name for than a year.
If you look at the registration information for the legitimate website twitter.com, you will notice that their domain name is registered for more than 5 years.
