More fake twitterers in banking

I was going to write a long post about the latest goings-on in this year's social network bandwagon, Twitter, but I've already done this a few times, and Christophe Langlois at Visible-Banking along with Bank Innovation give plenty more background on Twitter in banking if you're interested.  

I do have more to add but, for the moment, thought I'd take the route of finding fake banking twitterers, as it's far more fun.

This was sparked by John Soden III and Nat_West, but there are plenty of other fake twitterers out there such as:

Sir Fred Goodwin

Alistair Darling


Ben Bernanke


Richard Fuld


And, of course, Bernie Madoff


Mind you, are we sure they're fake?
