So, well, you get a troll.

Fuck you!

Err... S'not a very good troll.

Oh yeah, well, your mother wears combat boots. And stuff... *grin*

What about this trimmer account? (1)

Is that a sock as well? He seems... off. Weird?

trimmer == twitter. No doubt about it.

I didn't think that was him until I looked a bit closer (that account was created while I was on a trip a month ago or so).

Consider:

- The journal entry he has seems a bit forced. "English is not my mother tongue"? It looks like going out of your way to make people think misspelling things is OK, which is probably the only way he can try to fake it. And "having a little fun with twitter" doesn't really jive with "Alright, so who would take the time to collect all that bullshit by twitter in such anti-twitter propaganda journals?"
- His profile: "I created this account to play around with him" Who even talks like that. Well, probably someone whose "mother tongue" is not English.
- Look at his posts outside of journals. This [slashdot.org] seems more to me like "look everybody, just in case you weren't tired enough of twitter". This [slashdot.org] , a bit too convenient for the reply from the name troll. Look at this response with the deadzero [slashdot.org] account. From the usual "haha, i hate you and you should die" to "delusional"? Forced.
- This [slashdot.org] , which looks too much like a "look everyone I'm insulting twitter" reverse troll, and his response doesn't even match the way he replies to that sort of thing in the confines of his journal. You expect at least the usual "haha paytard M$ is dying so you're out of a job" riff, especially for someone who outright calls him an asshole.

Finally, and really more compelling, that journal entry again... it was posted at Thursday July 24, @05:02AM, and then wiIIyhiII gets first post at 05:34AM. What are the chances of that? Approaching negative infinity, I'd say.

I'm pretty sure it's him as well, I just didn't add it to the list because a) He's using it as a reverse troll, so it's really not a shill vehicle; and b) There isn't enough evidence to tie the account to him, other than the 32 minute difference in the post on the JE.

It doesn't matter anyway... fourteen is enough *grin*

I report... (1)

cp.tar (871488) | about 6 years ago | (#25311559)

... myself.

Which is both reporting a sock and trolling.

So there.

New sockpuppet: Xanadu (0)

Anonymous Coward | about 6 years ago | (#25313539)

I'm not sure if there is a Xanadu account on Slashdot, but it was just discovered that twitter has a sockpuppet named Xanadu on http://www.boycottnovell.com

Here's the thread: http://boycottnovell.com/2008/10/07/novellvideo-youtube-suspicion/

And here's a link to the relevant admission of guilt:

I didn't see Gat0r30y on your list. He used to be a frequently used sock, but he's tried to go straight. He's cleaned up his history and is gaining karma.... but I remember his early days:

Nah, that's not him. Just the "M$ Windoze" dance doesn't mean you're twitter. It just means you're dumb. Although the opposite is true... *grin*
