Fake Bill Murray Twitter account dies
Here’s a weird little story. A few days ago, a Twitter account showed up under the name @Bill_Murray posing as the famous actor (who, if you think about it for half a second, wouldn’t go anywhere near Twitter in a million years). Worse still, the account was grabbing tweets from well known Twitter comedians and passing them off as his own. He/it gathered 136,000 followers and then started asking them for money and it worked. After the heat gathered, fake Bill switched the name to @dotbizzle and kept stealing jokes. Now Twitter has shut the account down.
So that’s fake Bill Murray doing horrible things.
