Regular readers will know that the late Leader [sic] of Sandwell Council joined forces with Mr Andrew Hipkiss and others to troll me (and my wife) and get my Twitter accounts closed down. They used over SIXTEEN troll accounts and months were spent before Twitter closed most of them down*.
Twitter are well aware of Hipkiss's trolling and actually support it because he spends eighteen hours a day on the site and generates lots of traffic! They have been well aware of him for over three years but every time complaints start flooding in about his conduct they permit him to simply clone his account to a new name. They have let him do this several times. His current cloned account is @Socialism_UK. (Incidentally Cllr John Edwards is very keen on promoting Hipkiss).
Not long ago I set up a Twitter account in my own name and with all my own information: Jules Saunders @SandwellSkidder. Here is the public profile:
Immediately Hipkiss (a computer buff who claims to be mentally ill) said he would get the account closed down.
Yesterday Hipkiss hacked the account actually cloning my Twitter name which I believe to be a criminal offence. He set up a similar account with the actual Twitter handle @SandwellSkidder:
Note that he has identified the area where I live.
Last night I went through the usual rigmarole with Twitter - reporting him for impersonation, sending off my passport etc but guess what? I sh*t ye not but Twitter have suspended MY account for impersonation and let Hipkiss keep the malicious fake account going! This from Twitter:
This even seems to have taken Hipkiss by surprise and he put this mocking Tweet up about the so-called "parody" (ie troll) account outlasting the target:
Now Hipkiss is pretending to be me and sending stuff out supposedly in my name eg posts from the blog.
PLEASE REPORT @SANDWELLSKIDDER TO TWITTER AND ALSO UNFOLLOW > NOTHING ON THE ACCOUNT SINCE LAST NIGHT IS GENUINE!
Andy, a day of reckoning IS coming....
