Progressive Super Activist Harmony Wu using Fake Twitter Account?

Update: I was asked by @rwwatchma, or was it @harmonywho, to update my post to say I was wrong.  I think the tweets speak for themselves, but @harmonwho says she isn’t @rwwatchma. Probably because @rwwatchma is multiple people and she just had the con that day…. Whatevs..

Update 2: @rwwatchma, or is it @harmonywho says that s/he/it is not @harmonwho.  As the screen grabs show that is highly unlikely but whatevs….

Earlier this month there was a Twitter faux pas by Eric Fehrnstrom when he apparently forgot to switch twitter accounts and tweeted as Crazy Khazei.  Well it just happened to another person in the #mapoli universe.  Harmony Wu, who seriously considered primarying Stephen Lynch in 2010, is apparently the #mapoli troll @RWWatchMA.  Look at the two identical tweets at the same time from TweetDeck below.

TweetDeck, for those that don’t know, allows one to tweet from two or more accounts at the same time.  I use it to tweet from @redmassgroup and @robeno.  Looks like we’ve just uncovered another liberal troll.

  • If you catch a high-paid senior adviser to a presidential candidate and  U.S. senate candidate being paid to do it like Fehrnstrom. Until then, if it is this woman, it’s no different than all the other anonymous tweeters on Twitter and posters on BMG and RMG.

    An outspoken progressive activist creates a twitter account (right wing watch MA) as a platform to share info about and rebut assertions from the state’s conservative party. She doesn’t use her name in association with this account.

    A U.S. Senator’s paid campaign representative creates a parody account (CrazyKhazei) specifically targeting a rival candidate. He uses this account to mock the candidate named as well as other Democrats. He doesn’t disclose his affiliation with the account.

    Look, if Doug Rubin were caught behind a twitter handle like “@DouchebagBrown,” I’d be right behind you with outrage. But I don’t see the same thing happening here.

    There are lots of political twitter feeds that are run by operatives on both sides. The point of the feed is clear, and the intention and impact aren’t made any more transparent because of the identity of the person behind it.

  • Are you really that stupid, Rob “EaBo Clipper” Eno?

    I use it to tweet from @redmassgroup and @robeno.

    You point this out, I presume, because you both tweet as yourself and as the “organization” you represent (Red Mass Group).

    Well, genius, RWWatchMA is shorthand for Right Wing Watch Massachusetts – the state level chapter of the organization Right Wing Watch.  (See their Facebook page here.)

    Your own example of YOUR tweeting at both @robeno and @redmassgroup specifically justifies Harmony Wu’s double tweeting!!!

    But, all this just demonstrates your stupidity.

    The hypocrisy comes from you getting all wound up about a private citizen and political activist tweeting for herself and her organization (something YOU admittedly do) while you didn’t seem all that perturbed when a senior adviser for a U.S. Senator and a Presidential candidate intentionally and dishonestly ran a fake Twitter account.

    Honestly, this whole post is about a half a rung above flinging your own feces at a wall.

    Looks like we’ve just uncovered another liberal troll.

    Don’t hurt your arms patting yourself on the back – it would be a shame if such an injury kept you from tweeting from any of YOUR multiple Twitter accounts, genius.

  • When someone first said, “You’re RWWatch”, I told them “No, I’m not.”  When it came up again, again I said, “No, I am not.”

    Now you are blogging it as a “gotcha”, what, a week later? 2?

    I ask that you update your post to reflect that you are stirring this up in spite of denials by both me and RWW.  

    I can’t stop you from having suspicions and being paranoid.  That does seem to be the default for conservatives online.  You can build your fantastic case to prove a silly thing all you want.  Have at it.  But please be honest enough to state clearly that everyone in this alleged “scandal” has told you that your conclusion is dead wrong.  

    I don’t know who RWW is.  I don’t care who he is. (I always assumed it was a he for some reason).  I like what he posts, and I agree w/ much of the viewpoint he puts out there.  

    That’s about all I know about RWW.

    Thanks. Bye.  

  • This is what passes as front page material for RMG now? We are now tracking what “trolls” are tweeing?

    ….yikes

  • I appreciate it.

    Wow.  Really?  What contrition.  What integrity.

    The exact same text, formatted the exact same way, sent at the exact same time? Could happen to anybody.

    Was the next line, “Jinx on the Coke!”?

    *full disclosure:

    I understand absolutely nothing about tweets or twits or tw… ahem, well I’ll stop there..
