Who gets their jollies from setting up a false twitter account?

Recommended Posts

Yesterday, some person pretending to be Ken Rosenthal (if you looked closely enough, the twitter address was @kenrosental, without the "h") made a phony post about who had been traded from the Orioles for Wade Miley. It was debunked within 10 or 15 minutes, with a few posters reacting to the false information before it became clear it was a fake.

My question is, why would anyone do this? What possible satisfaction is there in misleading people for a few minutes and then being shown to be a fraud? What's the motivation here? I really don't get it.

My problem is the folks who take those guys tweets and then try to purport to have been in on the info previously myself.

It has gotten a lot better, but you should have seen Ravens' play-by-play announcer Gerry (with a "G") Sandusky's Twitter feed right after the Penn State, Jerry (with a "J") Sandusky scandal.
