If you're on Twitter, don't accept any follow requests allegedly from @universalhub

There's a right-wing troll who is currently sending out follow requests on Twitter with a user name that's remarkably similar to @universalhub (currently: he's substituted an upper-case I for a lower-case L, which on Twitter look identical). Don't accept them. And if you do stumble across the fake feed, don't worry: No, I haven't suddenly turned into a Russophile RWNJ.

Burn Adam at the stake, where are the pitchforks?

This means you've arrived you know, when the trolls start impersonating you.

Hmm

Is it registered to an address in Arlington?

Myself, I'm launching perfectlyfinemidtiercity.com to present a more accurate view than our rose colored glasses host here.

Honestly it could be ANYONE...

And for Adam, thats the frustrating part. Its practically impossible to trace. Your guess is as good as mine and Adam's. But my safe bet is that it is someone he knows. From UHub.

Could be someone from UHub, yes

By on

I seem to have attracted a coterie of people who detest me and UHub so much that you wonder why they keep coming back if it just gets them that angry (in college, I knew somebody like that - every time we'd visit a mutual friend's apartment, he'd run a hand over the leaves of a particular plant and then loudly announce how much he hated the feel of them - after awhile it was like "So stop touching them!").

But I doubt it's somebody I know personally, since I can't think of anybody like that who might secretly detest me enough to waste their time on something like this (could be wrong, of course, used to have a hater who'd regularly leave messages that showed more knowledge of my personal life and past job than your average online troll would know).

This moves beyond "parody" and straight into impersonation. The more people who report, the better the chances of a quick takedown.

Adam, you've officially made it. When people on Twitter are making fake accounts just to troll your viewpoints, you've reached the pinnacle of digital society.

Just think

This person has nothing better to do with their life than this and waiting for Trump to bring back manufacturing jobs.

I'm probably not the right person ...

... for this, since it's not like anyone from Tito Jackson's office knows me from Adam (the eponymous Adam, not our own), but it appears their twitter account is following the troll.

Update

Twitter just sent me a notification that my report was updated, and that the account was in violation of Twitter policies–but now the account is, or at least was because it doesn't appear to exist under this handle anymore, called @Boston_311.

This guy, and I know a lot of guys, and women, very nice people. But this guy, what a loser. Sad!
