Dawn of the undead: Fake Twitter accounts return
Not too long ago, I wrote about the problem of someone apparently paying for climate science denier ads to be run by a system of fake Twitter accounts. As you will see from the updates to that post, I thought the problem had been resolved, but it hasn't--they're baa-ack. The ads disappeared for a few days after December 1, but then a new series of accounts popped up--first with egg avatars, then the aforementioned photos of young women. I've written repeatedly to Twitter Support to remind them (about once a week), but am getting no response. So this is just for the record--the zombie accounts are still there, trying to eat the brains of people credulous enough to believe a BS quote about NASA scientists lying. See for yourself: just search for "NASA scientists" and you will find them.
