Fake Nutter Twitter Account Disabled

A Twitter account that appeared to belong to Mayor Nutter has been disabled. When you try to access www.twitter.com/Mayor_Nutter, a page pops up that says the account has been "suspended due to strange activity."

As previously reported by the Inquirer, the account didn't actually belong to the mayor. But it was a passable hoax, because the tweets were always on message, encouraging readers to visit Fairmount Park or reminding them of city programs.

Tricia Enright, a deputy chief of staff who works in the mayor's press office, said the city had requested that the page be taken down. She said there are no immediate plans for the mayor to launch his own twitter page.
