Another Fake Twitter and Law Suit

We at here Tea512 are huge fans of Twitter. We see the amazing potential and how great it can help any social media maven to get the message out to their niche. This is an enhanced feature to website or blog. This makes things like forums and FaceBook move in slow motion compared to Twitter. We do know that it is the web so it is the Wild West. We follow celebrities on Twitter and spend a couple of months following the fake Vanessa Hudgens, fake LL Cool J, and the fake Kayne West. This is a problem and it is not known to Twitter. Today we found out baseball guy, St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa is suing the social-networking site Twitter, claiming an unauthorized page that used his name to make light of drunken driving and two Cardinals pitchers who died damaged his reputation and caused emotional distress. The account bearing La Russa’s name is no longer active. The lawsuit includes a screen shot of three tweets. One posted on April 19 said: Lost 2 out of 3, but we made it out of Chicago without one drunk driving incident or dead pitcher. This has happened before and we are not sure if Twitter can take these kinds of financial hits as they are not a money machine. We do see that they may need some verification for user names and the create a account and start method might need changing. We have seen this before when squatters were grabbing dotcom names before business and celebrities could get them. This also could be that nothing that can be done about this kind of thing. You should not assume somebody is who they are unless they tell you through a third party source.

Makes me wish I had a gun
If I thought that I was crazy
Well I guess I’d have more fun
