Pro-Covid Policy Twitter Accounts Outed As Fakes

At a glance

  • In December, Twitter user Joshua Gutterman Tranen discovered a web of at least four fake Twitter accounts, all with bios saying they were allies to the LGBTQ+ community, that was pushing maximum caution over Covid along with absolute adherence to authoritative Covid policies such as masking and social distancing.
  • The San Francisco Standard reports that Gutterman Tranen uncovered the hoax by first investigating the Twitter user, Dr. Robert Honeyman, whose pinned tweet from November 12, 2022, reads, “My sister has passed away from Covid. The last couple of days have been difficult I won’t be responsive on here for a while. When I’m back all Covid minimisers will be blocked straight away.. I’m out of patience.”
