With all the recent news about fake verified Twitter accounts I guess we have to be even more cautious when new accounts pop up like this one supposedly from Gary Larson

However, this account does not have a verified badge on it nor does it indicate that it is a parody account which Twitter’s Terms of Service stipulate it must so that still makes this account questionable.

The account is quite new with the first tweet being sent on 15 Dec and only seven more since then and all of those have been after the new year began.  The tweets are sending out what appear to be ideas for cartoons however, a quick search shows that these are all past cartoons and not new ideas being shared.

For example:


Just check out this search on Bing and you will see the cartoon itself.

My vote is for a fake Gary Larson account here – what do you think?
