Fake Twitter Girls?

Friday, Jennifer Preston at the New York Times had an intriguing story about the “Betty and Veronica” sideshow of WeinerGate.

I was up to my neck in Right Online at the time, and so didn’t get around to blogging about it Friday, but to those of us who followed WeinerGate in-depth from Day One, this is one of those dangling loose threads — along with “PatriotUSA76″/”Dan Wolfe”/#bornfreecrew — that inspires continued fascination.

The bottom line? Don’t assume that people whom you know only through the Internet are who they really say they are, nor should you assume that people who profess to be “on your side” actually are.

Ace of Spades goes wading into the tall grass of this spooky swamp of mystification.
