Enjoy! And please let us know your comments below!
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.
“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. #IAgreeWithLouise“.
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.
Luke Bozier, the social media expert behind the new social networking site menshn.com (have we got that right?!), has found himself somewhat under siege in cyber space – not least since his defection from the Labour Party to the Conservative Party earlier this year.
A couple of weeks ago Mr Bozier ‘quit’ popular social networking website Twitter citing the massive amount of abuse that he has received on the website. He rather unceremoniously quit Twitter with two final messages for his followers:
His Twitter account, @Bozier, was promptly shutdown and remains offline.
For those of you that don’t know Menshn.com is a website designed to be a rival to Twitter with its tagline “Talk on topic” venting the frustration of founders Mensch and Bozier that Twitter can descend into a free for all with no real discussion of a certain topic occurring. Former Tory MP, Louise Mensch stated that they have put loads of time into the new social networking site which has received mixed reviews in general. Originally the website was only accessible to US visitors but it has now been expanded to include other countries, including the United Kingdom.
It’s possible that Luke was already intending to leave Twitter for Menschn and that the abuse he received via his Twitter account may have just hastened the process.
So, has Luke Bozier managed to escape the trolls by quitting Twitter? Well, not quite. Luke now has a new fan site set up – www.lukebozier.com. Now, from the content on the site, we think its safe to say that its by no means the official website of Luke Bozier.
Firstly the webmaster insults Luke:
The moves on further down to mocking Mr Bozier:
And then the webpage continues to display the final tweets of from Luke’s @Bozier Twitter account.
We’ve done a little digging to see if we can find out who has decided to vent their frustration at Mr Bozier and found out that its ‘Masseef Spaz’ from Paris. We are assuming that this is a false identity!!!
This comes around the same time that a ‘Twitter troll’ has set up a ‘parody account’ of Louise Mensch. The parody account @MenschTheWench has already been blocked by Ms. Mensch – not because of her objection to a parody account but due to the ‘anti semitic, racist avatar’.
It is unclear whether these actions against Mensch and Bozier are all from the same person although given the timing, it is most certainly a distinct possibility.
