Dr. Tony Attwood on Twitter is fake
Twitter user, alphabetania, suspicious of the Tony_Attwood account that was created on June 22, 2009, contracted Dawn Sheahan, the Personal Assistant to Professor Tony Attwood to confirm the identity of the account.
She received this response:
"Professor Tony Attwood, Clinical Psychologist specializing in autism and Asperger's syndrome definitely DOES NOT have a Twitter profile.
Thank you for alerting us to this fact, we are not in the process of closing down this Twitter link."
.... alphabetania and I think that Mz. Sheahan meant "now" instead of "not".
In any case, the fake account has been closed. yay for internet justice!
