BP and Twitter to @BPGlobalPR: Tell Them You're Joking

"In response to a request from Twitter and BP to clarify that it is, in fact, a parody, the Twitter account @BPGlobalPR altered its bio this week. Luckily, the fix only added to the hilarity of the profile.

According to The New York Times, Twitter contacted @BPGlobalPR on Tuesday to remedy the identity issue (@BPGlobalPR is a parody account created by an anonymous user in response to the massive oil spill off the Gulf of Mexico). The twitterer in question poses as a clueless BP PR person, offering scathing commentary about the manner in which the spill has been dealt with. And, it seems, this week BP had had enough with the charade."
