Comic, Creepy or Criminal (Storify Link)
It seems that WordPress.org has a storify plug-in but WordPress.com doesn’t, so I again go with just inserting the link…
Hum… I am in 2 minds about this, actually. On the one hand, ‘parody accounts’ could be seen as a side-effect of having a public (social media) presence. And, indeed, some parody accounts are not only entertaining but they may end up being beneficial to the individuals or institutions in question – I am thinking about the account @Queen_UK, for instance. On the other hand, isn’t setting up a Twitter account with someone else’s picture and ID (e.g., name and affiliation) a case of impersonation (and, therefore, potentially criminal)?
On a different note, I heard through the grapevine that you got your tenure ;-) Congratulations :-)
Thank you for your comment.
I am entertained by this parody. I think that they are witty and funny. It helps that I now know who is behind it (friends).
Previously a couple people stole my pic and name to sell crap, which I reported to Twitter.
So I guess it is key that the content be good and authorship transparent.
Thanks – It was a BIG day when I got the tenure letter!
