Anything to do with the site

You've been followed, Mister! :P Anyway for twitter to not sound creepy?

I'm doing my best to keep up on the follows. I'm also doing my best to constantly remind people I'm not Natalie and exposing some of the fake twitters out that claiming to be her.

I find it pretty mean-spirited to pretend to be a beloved celebrity because people actually think they're talking to her. All of the accounts I've found pretending to actually be Natalie herself can't even spell so I'm not sure who out there is buying it but there seem to be plenty of people.

Twitter update: We're hovering at 260 followers right now (it is twitter...everyday you'll gain and lose followers). This is pretty incredible. Other friends with twitter accounts for very well known businesses, bands, etc have been up for a year or so and most of them hang at 150-200. Hasn't even been a month and we're rockin' it. Thanks to everyone who's been giving support![/list]

Hey everybody I spent the last hour messaging people who follow the fake Natalie (who has the gall to claim her twitter is Natalie's official). I have already convinced some people to "unfollow" the impostor. If you use twitter, be sure to let @INataliePortman know the real Natalie's fans are not amused by his/her illegal impersonation of Natalie. Maybe if enough of us write to this fake he/she will delete the account or at least own up to being a fake. :P

Hey cuddlicious. Are you following @natpdotcom? If so what's your @ so I can hit you with a follow (in case I'm not already).
I posted about this issue in "A Twitter Annoyance". Unfortunately, there are a lot of scummy people pretending to be Natalie. Formerly, natalieportmanx was about the worst of the offenders. But after I reported that account and sent a message to them explaining why what they're doing is wrong, they ultimately deleted. Now inatalieportman is the biggest problem. Unfortunately, when I report these accounts twitter demands that I give legal documentation from the site's lawyer (lol...yes our lawyer...that we totally have) or from Natalie's legal representation. I even tried getting the account banned on impersonation simply for stating she's also the official rep of np.com (since I figured I can easily prove that I am the only one aside from Dazza who actually has the right to say natalieportman.com is the site I represent). I don't know why they make it so difficult to get these accounts banned. I have a friend who's pretty well known and he's had a couple fake twitters deleted but I think there are still a few that even he himself is having trouble getting rid of (used to have a personal facebook too...not anymore).
What I find funny is the amount of people who believe that this is Natalie. I understand if you're a casual fan and don't know much about her. A lot of celebrities tweet like idiots with terrible grammar. But it's pretty clear that not only does this person barely speak English, but the timing of tweets and use of photos only after the site has them should let people know. Now, for the true fans who do think it's her, those are the ones I feel badly about. I see young teen girls tweeting her questions, so excited they're talking to Natalie.
People I guess just really want to believe that every celebrity could listen to all the crap they have to say to them. It's silly. But I know inatalieportman is being spammed to death so perhaps it will stop...

Yep you're following me on there.
I emailed ID-PR about the situation and the dangers of someone impersonating Natalie, hopefully they will take action!

Happy to report that about 8 to 10 fans of Natalie have responded to me saying they stopped following the fake. Several of them had suspicions already due to the bad spelling/grammar.

I mean, really, if you're gonna impersonate a Harvard grad, at least spell right! :roll:

YAY! I was guessing that was you. THANK YOU. You're helping us out a lot (I've seen the tweets you've sent to followers/impersonator and I know you have more people questioning them). I refuse to follow inatalie but I do check out their stuff to see what's going on. With No Strings out it's gotten a lot worse.

Why do fans get sucked in so easily I wonder?

They want to believe its her?

Even before i found this forum I knew simply from the media Natalie was one of those Celebs that shunned the spotlight and fans in general so something like a facebook account was always going to be bogus
no matter how well constructed

Twitter is no different

That's also my biggest confusion here (or really my only confusion about this issue)...if you're a Natalie fan how are you seeing the timing of the tweets/grammar mistakes from someone who clearly does not speak English well at all (maybe their 3rd language or so? But it was Nabokov's 3rd and he handled it just fine). There are no personal pictures. As soon as something is up on the site, she/he has it. Otherwise, there's nothing. It even says she lives in NY...bad fan then I guess since the huge deal was made over her LA spread.
For casual fans, I get it. She says she's official an represents OUR SITE (this makes me super angry that I can't get them to remove the impersonators...I'm the only one who can say I represent the site legitimately ("I", "I" as in anyone from NP.com who can post).
BUT! There is good news...
We have officially cleared the 500 mark high enough for me to report it. We're around 520 last I saw. <3

Oh no lol. I was just saying I can report the good news of reaching over 500. Considering the extremely short amount of time we've been up this is pretty insane. For the most part, people have been great.

I guess nattiehersh, inatalieportman, and the rest can have as many followers as they please. I think we got the best of 'em ;)
