For those of you jonesing for some new Weinergate tidbit, here’s some screenshots of a couple of Starchild111 things I’ve located: a new profile cache from May 14, this one showing tweets. Plus, I have a shot of what possibly was her last public tweet as Starchild111, and it’s not on May 18. It’s much later.
The first is a cache of @Starchild111 tweets in May. The cache is dated “May 14, 2011 07:53:05 GMT.” [Note: Eastern Daylight Time is four hours behind Greenwich Mean Time. (It would have been Daylight, not Standard time on May 14.) Pacific Daylight Time is seven hours behind Greenwich Mean Time. I’ll let y’all do the math for each tweet, but to get you started, the first tweet shown here would have been at 3:52am EDT/12:52am PDT on May 14.]
And the second half of the cache. Note that first two tweets shown below duplicate the last two tweets above. This is to show the continuity of the tweet stream from screenshot to screenshot, since I could not get them all on the same page. (The tweets were not duplicated in the cache. It was a choice I made in capturing the screenshots.)
And also, I located a tweet beyond the May 18th tweets shown the FriendFeed cache. This one comes after the Weiner scandal broke.
Note that Juan_Dodgers has had his account for quite a while (unlike the other Starchild “friend” account of @MarianelaAlicea). He actively tweets every day about the Dodgers and other things in his life. With the amount of consistent time he spends on his twitter account, it seems very unlikely that he is a sock puppet.
That’s all for now. Please enjoy.
UPDATE 07/03/11 12:10am
Note that in the May 28 tweet, Starchild111 asks Juan_Dodgers to follow her. We don’t have any evidence on the record yet that would show whether he had ever followed her prior to this—although they certainly did a lot of tweeting for a short period of time (a couple of days).
It’s possible that he never followed her until this time (and there’s no evidence as to whether he followed before she deleted her account—in fact, there’s no evidence that he even saw this tweet). She may have deleted her account before he had the chance to do anything.
The other possibility is that she had deleted all of her followers and followings, but still had the account open, as some others on the periphery of this story have done.
I had considered the possibility that she did not actually close her account, but simply changed the name on the account. By deleting all her followings/followers, they would not see her name change in their accounts. However, that may be an errant path—anyone that RTd her would now show the new name on the RT, I think. Mentions would stay the same, but if they were clicked on, the slide-out Twitter screen would show the profile of the new name. [Don’t take my word on this. I’m only speaking from past observations of how Twitter operates. I have not attempted to test these observations to see if there are any exceptions—or if I drew incorrect conclusions.]
One thing that does surprise me is the late hour of the tweet. I believe the time is EDT, based on the way Google displayed it. However, it’s possible that the time is PDT. The time zone doesn’t affect my surprise, however. I thought the MarianelaAlicea account was closed on the morning of May 28—after making a last push to provide information on Weiner. I had assumed that the Starchild111 account was closed then, if not earlier. This shows they were around longer than that.
