One tactic that came about soon after Twitter was created was the use of the service in smears against each other in ongoing internet battles. Impersonator accounts sprang up like weeds in a flower garden.

I was once the victim of this practice and now notice that others are starting to be targeted in this practice as well. What is also interesting is that all sides of a certain dispute seems to have endorsed this practice with the net result that everyone is setting up fake twitter accounts where smears of all kinds are being spread about each other.

What is lost in all of this of course is the reason for whatever started the arguments in the first place. Mudslinging of all sorts for the pure hell of it seems to be the only purpose for what is happening on the internet today.

The winner in all of this is the legitimate blogs such as who have avoided going down this muddy path.


Stay tuned
