The unhinging of David Fisher and Peter Aranyi via Social Media

I have been pretty busy the last couple of days and didn’t realise that someone had set up a parody Twitter account of David Fisher.

David is relatively new to social media and hasn’t quite realised how it all works…and has taken great umbrage at having a parody account made of him.

He should be chuffed…instead he is throwing a tanty.


At least Toby Manhire gets it. Pity Peter Aranyi doesn’t won’t can’t…he’s gone back to his creepy stalker ways and devoted yet another post to me full of angst, outrage and camp side comments….Puh-leeeeeease 

Only fools believe that Twitter is engagement. It isn’t, no one wants to know every little bit of your life and if you are dumb enough to tweet it then you deserve a kicking.

For the record it isn’t me operating the parody account…I’m too busy finding Herald Bombs…and we all know how many of those there are.

The parody tweets are funny too…and when you go through Fisher’s own tweet history you can see that the parody account has mimicked him pretty accurately especially all the sucky Dotcon tweets.

Chris Keall clearly has fallen under the Fatman’s spell and is all familiar with his writing now.

and the parody account lays down a challenge to the real David Fisher’s whinging:

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
