Here’s a weird quirk of what appears to be a new kind of spam.
Gus Sentementes, the Johns Hopkins social media manager and popular former technology reporter and blogger for the Baltimore Sun, is already on Twitter:
But that didn’t stop this person from assuming Sentementes’ Twitter identity and bio under the username GusSent2:
So, who is this mystery man/woman/penguin/Terminator/Lennay Kekua that the true Sentementes reported to Twitter?
A “social media guy” who seriously loves FAT, GREASY CHEESE BURGERS:
The founder of Nestpix who obviously has never watched the Jennifer Lawrence Q&A post-Oscar win:
A “former tech journalist” who apparently left that journalism job to avoid early mornings:
Undecided on his feelings about Megan Fox’s apology to Lindsay Lohan:
Maybe it’s part of an effort to sell Twitter followers by creating fake accounts that copy other profiles, or maybe not.
It’s all right, @GusSent2. You can haz cheezburger. You can’t, however, have Gus Sentementes’ identity.
