Spill Spoof Aids Gulf Recovery

@bpglobalpr, a parody BP public relations Twitter account, has  155,678 followers; the real BP Twitter account has 13,925. The anonymous spoofer has raised $10,000 towards Gulf restoration by selling T-shirts; BP’s repair, cleanup, compensation, and PR efforts have earned nothing but scorn.

BP Twitter Spill Spoof

May 28, 2010

BP Twitter Spill Spoof

@bpglobalpr, a parody BP public relations Twitter account, has 64,000 followers; the real BP Twitter account has 7000, wrote Salon‘s Andrew Leonard last night. The numbers have since changed: @bpglobalpr has 84,000  90,000 followers; BP has 7800 8400.

BP wants to shut down the parody Twitter account. It’s unclear if the company will use a Top Hat, Tube Insert, Top Kill, or Junk Shot.
