Edit 2: We're ready to roll. I just need to get the approval of the people in charge.
Edit: We're doing some final vetting on the story, folks. I hope you'll give us the benefit of the doubt. Longtime readers of the site should know we aren't about getting cheap hits. We want to make sure get it right. We are hoping to have it up soon, but don't spend the night refreshing the page. Keep it in perspective. We have the story of a parody Twitter account with 400 followers, not the Jets trading for Drew Brees.
Thank you for your patience and loyalty-JB
Many of you are familiar with Jake Steinberg, a writer for The Jets Blog who has become an insider for the team. Here is an article talking about his Jets related exploits.
The article mentions that there is a parody Twitter account of somebody pretending to be him, @Steiny32. This person has made fun of Steiny consistently and posted crude and insulting Tweets of both Steiny and others, including beat writers. Nobody has found much evidence of his identity, until now.
I have come across evidence indicating who this person might be, and you will see that today on GGN.
I confronted the person behind the account yesterday seeking comment. Since that person read my message, please note the Tweets coming from Fake Steiny.
It feels sad to realize that this might be coming to an end.No I am not talking about the Jets season.— Fake Steiny Verified (@Steiny32) November 25, 2012
There used to be honor among thieves. Today that concept seems foreign to so many.Thank you to all the supporters.— Fake Steiny Verified (@Steiny32) November 25, 2012
I will comment more after the story about this account runs.Please withhold judgement until I can explain further.— Fake Steiny Verified (@Steiny32) November 25, 2012
@gregrenoff No it isn't the Jets.It is a rogue blogger.— Fake Steiny Verified (@Steiny32) November 25, 2012
Yup, I'm the "rogue" blogger with no "honor" according to the dude hiding behind an alias to make fun of people. Stay tuned for more.
