The Supervisor issued the following statement today:
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT re UNAUTHORIZED TWITTER ACCOUNT: It was brought to my attention today, April 2, that for the past several years, beginning in 2009, someone has been posting from a Twitter account using my name. The account is @federalglover. We have reported the account to Twitter and will be sending out a take down notice.
If you have been following that account with the assumption that it’s me posting, please feel free to dissociate yourself from it. I will be launching an official Twitter account shortly and will let you know when it is operational ~ Federal.
Until the Twitter account gets straightened out, you can follow Supervisor Federal Glover on Facebook.
