At the encouragement of a fellow blogger, I finally decided to do a post about this to try and remedy what I find to be a disgusting and off-putting situation. As some of you may or may not know, the twitter account @JegFreja is a FAKE. There was another account before (frejabe) that was fake but people managed to get it shut down. However, this new one has popped up in it's place and I find it extremely troubling that some people have the gall and audacity to impersonate other people. How messed up in the head do you have to be??
Maybe there is someone out there reading this who can do something about it? Maybe someone connected to Freja in some way? Agents? Family? Someone? Wishful thinking I know, but I wanted to make a post about this just on the slim, off chance that there really is someone reading this who has the authority to take action: http://support.twitter.com/forms/impersonation
That link is the best solution, and if you're just a fan you can report the account as spam and/or unfollow it. You might be asking yourself why I care so much. Well, I care because the quality and content of the tweets are degrading a public persona that Freja has worked hard to establish over the years. At this point in her career, she's a brand image and something like this could damage that brand. Marketing (be it positive or negative) can be a very powerful thing. Some might say it doesn't matter, or that it's harmless; but in today's world everything matters and everything has an effect, whether it's immediately apparent or not.
If you know anything about the type of person Freja is and how she approaches her career and her private life, you'd know that she would never take to twitter to espouse the banalities of her day. Martha Streck has already confirmed through her real twitter that Freja doesn't have an account. I know other people have been able to confirm this as well. So if you're one of them, please feel free to leave a comment.
This has got to stop. I don't have the power to stop it, but hopefully someone out there does. So please spread the news. Thank you!
