[UPDATE 7-28-2011, 4:57 PM: Bogus SFSundayStreets is no more. It’s has ceased to be. Now, it’s all, “Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!” Fast work, Twitter.]
All right, let’s see here.
Here’s the real Sunday Streets Twitter account. Enjoy.
Now, here’s the fake one: SFSundayStreets.
It disappeared just after this post from a few days ago.
But now it’s back with a new name: “SFBiking.”
See? Note the URL:

You can’t see it now, but this bogus account has 76,000 entries.
Who controls this robot Twitter?
What’s the scam – how does it make money?
All that I saw were references to making donations to “Livable City.”
Is there some rogue fundraiser out there on commish (and thus highly motivated to get the cash coming in)?
Or, are donors making donations to the wrong place?
Anyway, the sooner this account gets shut down for good, the better.
