Patrik Antonius has Twitter Imposter

Tuesday, 1 September 2009

Patrik Antonius wishes the poker community to know that he has an imposter on new social networking site Twitter. Despite the frequent updates that are accurate to Antonius’s day, he says that he does not even have a Twitter account.

"Someone has registered a Twitter account using my name and now he's posting stuff like it's written by me," Patrik says irritated. "He's been following me pretty closely and knows what I've been doing, so one might think they are actually written by me.”

Antonius went on to describe an incident in which Doyle Brunson confronted him angrily about his Twitter updates, with Antonius of course having no idea what he was supposed to have done.

“Doyle was offended because he thought I had written something like, 'I played with Doyle last night and beat him easily.’” Antonius said. “I had actually played with Doyle and durrrr the previous night at Bobby's Room, and the guy knew that. Supposedly I had written that Doyle is becoming senile and he's no match to me anymore, so understandably he was not happy about it.”

"I don't have a Twitter account and I have never posted a single word there," Patrik states. "I have no interest in posting updates about my comings or goings. I'm a private person and I want to keep my private life to myself. I would never want to post entries telling everybody where I am and what I'm doing right now."

Full Tilt pro Antonius also revealed that the majority of Facebook accounts under his name are fake. “I do have my own Facebook account but I use it only to keep in touch with certain persons.”

So the lesson is – don’t believe everything you read online, unless you read it at
