No One Likes a Copycat
We are what we are, we gain nothing by copying others.
We interrupt our regular programming for a hilarious copycat scenario that has now happened upon me twice.
In May 2010, my friend Clare let me know that someone was posing as me on Twitter, named: Graceypoob. In this case, they were actually responding to friends of mine and pretending they were at Boulder Startup Week (the event that happened simultaneously to the poob posting).
Yes: http://twitter.com/graceypoob the poob is still up, but now my boyfriend affectionately calls me Graceypoob and I have a good laugh. Since the day I found out, they stopped but my “headshot” name and location still remain on the Twitter page.
Last night my friend Katie discovered another Grace troll. Since I’m so exciting, apparently.
Although the content has nothing to do with me, (tweeting spam links) it is indeed my picture.
So I tweeted (and promptly blocked/marked for spam).
I’m not sure why they don’t just use stock photo or another innocent bystander, but it’s perplexing. It’s always this photo that is used, as well.
Maybe this provides some amusement, maybe this also shows how wack the Internet can really be and maybe, this is also happening to someone else.
Thoughts? Laughter? Crickets?
