An account made in Dimon’s name was registered on Twitter and fooled some into believing that he had joined the social media website. However, after news broke about the account, the owner of it made sure to label that it was only a parody account, reports The Wire.
However, registering the fake Dimon handle as a parody account may not have saved it. As of Thursday afternoon, attempts to visit the fake JPMorgan Chase CEO account resulted in an alert that it has been suspended. It’s unknown if the account will be making a return or if Twitter will delete it.
According to The Wire, the fake Jamie Dimon account’s first post was as follows:
“We are excited to announce that our CEO James Dimon has joined Twitter. This account is managed by the Global Media Relations Department. — James Dimon (@JPMorganCEO) August 27, 2014”
