Weinergate: @Starchild111 In Transition

Another GREAT find by AZ5thDistrict….who tweeted

starchild in 1/2011 – 7 on tweet counter(Jenay) & on 4/11 still at 7 w/ name (starchild)http://bit.ly/lGyojb

For anyone clinging to the theory that even though Jenny George CREATED the Starchild account, she possibly maybe kinda hasn’t been PROVEN to be Nikki  this is huge.

Here’s the @Starchild account on April, 2011.   Still not quite ‘Nikki’ yet. No name.

Star-follows

But – look at her followers….some of the old ones, but also – @GingerLee. The transition to Weiner women has begun. Is this REALLY how a ‘hacker’ would do it? Or are we looking at someone working on something, in process?

Check the site yourself.

And from March 13 – here’s GingerLee tweeting back to Starchild…

So Weiner is clearly being targeted by Starchild in March – but following the same people that Jenay did.

  1. Do you have a screenshot from the January “Jenay” profile?

  2. She had 7 tweets in January, and 7 Tweets in April…but had somehow Tweeted Ginger Lee about Anthony Weiner in March? How does that tweet count work?

  3. Interesting.

    But if someone else had picked up the starchild111 account, why wouldn’t they add stuff they’re interested in to the existing follows?

    The point of taking an old account is to not have a brand new account. You keep the old tweets and old follows so you look like a real person with a history.

  4. Should be 4/6 not 4/11 on the cache date.

  5. Yes, in my tweet I put 4/11 not 4/6. My bad!

    I “suspect” starchild accnt deleted some tweets between 1/11 and 4/11. Only because the tweet counter at 7 in Jan and Apr.

    In Jan, there were no tweets or following Ginger Lee. In 4/6 cache we can’t see timeline of tweets. On 3/13 we know she tweeted GLee.

    The name difference and “following” difference are important. Honestly, I did not want to share this page because I had wanted to get John Reid to answer my simple question first at Patterico.com.

    “When did Nikki start/create (approx Month/Year) her Twitter accnt?”

    I asked 4 times, but he did not answer. Simple question really. Parents claimed to have monitoring software, monitor in person, have open dialog with “Nikki” looking online such as GL’s blog. So a simple question with that in context.

  6. This is the “list” cache so you wouldn’t see the tweets, i don’t believe, just the number of tweets at that point in time. They could be the same 7 tweets at that point in time.

  7. Does deleting tweets reduce tweet count?

  8. This definitely makes it unlikely that original starchild was deleted and reissued to Nikki Reid.

  9. Try deleting some of your tweets, Maybee and you’ll find out. 🙂

  10. Lee,

    Using 4/2011 cache, we’re not certain she deleted all “her” old tweets. This is cache page of starchild “lists” page found on google (could not find on yahoo).

  11. ltw- I don’t do Twitter anymore. Can you just tell me?

    Reply
  12. Me neither…TMI. The tweet counter is counting what is in your stream at that point in time (see cache date). So that is how many tweets are there as of 4/6 at a certain time.

  13. Wow. Things went bad between Ethel and Nikki pretty quickly, no? (Milowent’s cache with the psycho girl tweet)

  14. az5thdstrct – Can you update your tweet to put 4/11 instead of 4/6 as the cache date? I’m assuming Lee’s post is linking to your twitter feed.

  15. I mean put 4/6 instead of 4/11…

  16. How does one access the Google cache of an account that has protected its tweets? If I google the user name of such an account and click the “cached” link, it redirects to the current Twitter page for the account. Can anyone school me on this?

  17. I’m coming in late, but I don’t really get the point of this. It’s not dispositive, and it’s not really even suggestive, because – yes, someone appropriating that account might leave it essentially as it was, especially if it plans to use an account passing for an older one. I think it’s JG all along, but what is shown in the post is not a reason.

    You think a hacker with that purpose would dump all the old follows? I think the opposite. They are mostly stupid generic celebrity follows anyway. The writing program isn’t – but it is not a “personal” twitter account with friends that could grow suspicious at the identity change. The post-jenay tweeter, supposing it is an account borrower or appropriator, is planning on establishing an LA identity.

  18. Lee, did you remove your last @starchild111 post that includes screencap of cache of tweets from her to Ginger & Ethel?

    On radio you say “smooth transition” a few times. “Smooth” would have the old personality intermixed with the new personality in activities. Do we see “smooth” or do we see a clean break from old (Kardashian/ J-Lo fan) to new (talks to Weiner’s girls)?

  19. @pablo: I have that same problem. What I do is right click and save the cache file, and then open that file directly. That overrides the automatic redirect that occurs for me when i click on a twitter cache link.

  20. Thanks, milowent, but I’m still being redirected. Rats.
