Accept No Substitutes

During SMOFCon, people started contacting me to inform me that someone has started a Twitter account that is impersonating me. It's using my header and profile photo. I'm not going to give its address because I don't see any need to give it any more publicity. I am @KevinStandlee on Twitter, and nothing other than that.

I have reported the fake account to Twitter and have submitted the first round of paperwork to them. I hope they'll be able to take down the fake account relatively soon. It hasn't said much in public that I can see. But if you are getting anything on Twitter that purports to be me but isn't from @KevinStandlee, it's a fake, and you might want to report it to Twitter yourself.
