One thought on “Media Monday Edmonton: Update #90

  1. Just so people know – I had nothing to do with the fact that my Twitter doppelganger, Perla Sermons, had “her” account suspended. I was quite content to be a good sport about it. But I had noticed that Perla had been sending rude messages to other people, and making some rather unfunny – albeit not particularly crude – oral sex jokes. She certainly wasn’t as classy as I am, but I was surprised, and perhaps perversely disappointed when she was shut down. I’ve certainly seen worse behaviour out in the Twitterverse. It was weirdly flattering to have attracted my very own Twitter troll. I just wish he/she had been a wee bit more witty!
