The recent revelation of the identity of the @CormacCMcCarthy has us thinking the ethics of Twitter impersonation.
In a stunning bit of matrimony news, News Corp. overlord Rupert Murduch has filed for divorce from his pie bodyguard/third wife, Wendi Deng.
After breaking the story of Yahoo naming its new CEO, AllThingsD's Kara Swisher figured out exactly how Twitter ended up accidentally verifying a fake Wendi Deng Twitter account, and it's not what you think.
The new Twitter account for Wendi Deng is a fake, and even though it bestowed the sacred "Verified" badge onto the account -- and subsequently removed it -- Twitter won't reveal any details about how it got duped by the fraudster.
