Sad News: The Krassenstein Brothers Have Been Banned from Twitter for Life

Obsession:At its worst, obsession is an iron mask that permits us to gaze in only one direction at one thing—or, to use another metaphor, a giant tidal wave that crashes through our minds and washes away all other concerns. We may become obsessed with a person, a place, a goal, a subject—but obsession amounts to the same thing in all cases: addiction.

Sad News: The Krassenstein Brothers Have Been Banned from Twitter for Life :rolleyes:

Absolutely everyone is reeling from the tragic reports that the Krassenstein brothers' constant presence on every tweet the president makes is over forever. Twitter has banned the prolific speed-tweeters, famous for their witty #Resistance repartee, for operating fake accounts and apparently buying influence and followers on the platform.

I know what you're thinking: "Who in the hell are the Krassenstein brothers?" It's a fair question. I have no idea either.
All I know is every time the president tweeted, Ed and Brian Krassenstein would show up immediately with their retorts, usually involving Russian collusion. Like most presidential critics, their barbs were insulting and petty. In fact, they were so forgettable that no one appears to have saved any of them before they were removed from Twitter. It's such a shame. One transcript appears to remain and it's rather damning, considering Twitter has accused them of buying influence. Twitter gave a statement to The Hill about the situation: “The Twitter Rules apply to everyone. Operating multiple fake accounts and purchasing account interactions are strictly prohibited. Engaging in these behaviors will result in permanent suspension from the service.”

WHO IS KING AND QUEEN OF FAKE, TWEETERS?



Barack Obama is political king of the fake Twitter followers, with more than 19.5 MILLION online fans who don't really exist

Published: 16:58 EDT, 24 September 2013 | Updated: 23:09 EDT, 16 November 2014

Among influential U.S. political tweeters, President Barack Obama is the undisputed king of the fake followers. A MailOnline analysis ranks his sizable Twitter following as the most deceptive total among the 21 most influential accounts run by American politicians: More than 19.5 million of his 36.9 million Twitter followers are accounts that don't correspond to real people.

The four phoniest accounts in the sample, which included Democratic and Republican Party leaders in Washington, D.C., were those belonging to President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, first lady Michelle Obama and the White House communications shop.

Of the president's 36.9 million Twitter followers, an astonishing 53 per cent – or 19.5 million – are fake accounts, according to a search engine at the Internet research vendor StatusPeople.com. Just 20 per cent of Obama's Twitter buddies are real people who are active users.
