It’s was a tad more intriguing than the typical Twitter fight when several fake Corey Mintz accounts were created this week allegedly by a chef at Café du Lac who didn’t like Mintz’s review (he pooh-pooh’d the soggy fries in his foie gras-topped poutine) in the Star last week.

The aliases popped up and added all the people that follow the real Mintz, prompting the Twitterati to alert him of the impersonators ironically spewing out Tweets about all the fake Mintz accounts out there.

“Unpleasant. But the price we pay for free public discourse. Thanks everyone,” Mintz first Tweeted.

“Hey gang. Anyone want a stalker, 1/2 price? Mine is back with three new IDs: costa sarganis, costanamintz and coreymintzs,” Mintz continued.

The fake accounts have all been deleted since, but the drama was recounted in Shinan Govani’s National Post column yesterday. Stay strong, Mintz. After all, impersonation is the best form of flattery.
