Luke Bozier, Co-Founder of Menshn Is Back On Twitter (Kind of!)
20 days ago we covered Luke Bozier, social media expert and ‘new Tory’, and his strop where he quit Twitter for good. But now, the good (or maybe bad!) news is that he’s back. Well kind of back. His profile is back, although it is not his any more.
We’ve now got Bozier-by-proxy (well not quite, but you know what we mean). Surprisingly, although a fake account, it hasn’t been as uncomplimentary and offensive towards Mr. Bozier as it was first thought it would be. The owner of the account seems to have gone for more of a ‘mickey-take’ at the moment rather than being offensive – which seems to be going down pretty well in the world of Twitter.
Some of the new @Bozier‘s tweets have included:
“Guys, I’m thinking of changing the font in Menshin’s logo to something more modern & cool. Comic Sans MS or Papyrus?”.
“Peter Hain’s hacking is a further sign we need to be able to monitor all internet traffic.
And this cracker:
“Menshn is going strong! Hundreds of millions members, no trolls or spammers. Number one chatspot in the social mediasphere.”
We can’t help but feel that they’ve missed the #sarcasm off the last one!
So, now celebrities (or mediocrely popular people) now need to really think long and hard before abandoning their online profiles. With websites such as Twitter, as soon as a person closes down their Twitter account, anyone, anywhere can instantly recreate it and do what they like with it. This recent action of recreating the ‘Bozier’ account would seem to suggest that if celebrities (or mediocrely popular people ;)) want to leave a social networking site, they are better just to leave quietly, not delete their profile and never log in again. There’s also another benefit to this – in a year when you decide to come back to the website, you don’t have to recreate your account again – you’ll just be able to log in to your old (new) profile!!
And by the way, just in case you were wondering, Bozier’s “fan site” that we reported on a while back is still up.
