FAKE Twitter profiles are one of life’s irritating mysteries.
Like why does dropped toast always fall down on the buttered side, or why whenever you run for a bus is it guaranteed to pull away?
But why on earth anybody creates a Twitter identity pretending to be someone else is beyond a rational mind. Perhaps we at the Echo should have known better when Duncan Ferguson, suddenly appeared as an avid Tweeter.
The Echo’s deputy head of sport Dave Prentice even wrote about how incongruous it seemed. Sure enough, it turned out to be false. God help the imposter should he ever bump into the Big Man himself.
