Default PSA for Twitter users & USC is trying to shut down fake twitter accounts.

Twitter account JadeveonClowny is not real, it is someone pretending to be him

No link, heard on the radio that the university is getting involved in shutting down fake accounts of our players. Mainly the fake Clowney one that has 50k followers while Jadeveon's real account only has 22k. I see a lot of post on other boards with links to Clowneys fake account b/c people think its actually him and whoever runs it likes to bash whoever we are playing that week. It's being said, with the Manti Te'o situation, they are trying to buckle down more on social media. Good idea IMO. Some might think twitter is silly and this is a waste of time... But social media has become huge and can't be ignored, especially when it makes one of our players look bad.



I added the part in red to help out any of our posters who use twitter to keep up with player/recruit news-Johnnyb

Yeh I first saw this on my Garnet&black attack app... either way, even if the "real" Clowney had something negative to say about Manti Te'o, I would gladly listen.

Default Re: PSA for Twitter users & USC is trying to shut down fake twitter accounts.

heard them talking about it on 1075 around 2 today..


Daryl Slater went on some stupid tangent about something that had nothing to do with the topic




Anyways, it is a good idea. There needs to be more of an effort to validate certain accounts because of the potential backlash. However, like most things in life, there can always be backlash from validation potentially. At the end of the day, though, I think validating helps the player and the university more than leaving it as-is

Clowney's account should have been validated by twitter at this point, correct?

Though Lattimore did not get his blue badge until late in DEC of 2012.

One of the funnier accounts is the fake Stephen Garcia one.

And no you don't have to be a pro to be verified. Johnny Football's is verified.

It has to do with the popularity of the person more than anything else

Fwiw a Clemson fan runs that fake Clowney account, that's why the bio is written to make him look incredibly uneducated and that's why he talks shit about other teams there. It's all to make Clowney look bad, and apparently a bunch of our fans eat it up, which is sad.

You sure it's a Clemson fan? "He" throws off on the ACC a lot. One of the tweets was "I was going to buy a pack of gum, but I decided to go to the ACC Championship game instead." And "A drink at the ACC Championship Game costs more than a ticket."

Many South Carolina media guys, including Michael Haney and Scott Hood, as well as bigger name media people have been begging Twitter to validate Clowney's real Twitter account.
