Dwight Jones (Doesn't) Join Twitter 

Update: Two things have happened since we posted this. First, the person behind the Dwight Jones parody account on Twitter gave up pretending to be Jones and changed its handle to "Dwight the Blight." Second, the mayor's press secretary, Tammy Hawley, distributed this press release:

On Monday, November 17, 2013, a Twitter account under the username @MayorJonesRVA sent out its first tweet. The account holder is not Mayor Dwight C. Jones and is impersonating the Mayor in a public arena. This impersonation of an elected, government official is not appropriate and poses a dishonest voice to the public.

The Office of the Mayor is currently completing all necessary paper work to have this account removed from Twitter. For official news from the City of Richmond, please follow @CityRichmondVA.

Update No. 2: Ugh. Ok: Twitter suspended the account overnight and the people behind it apparently sent a video to the local CBS affiliate.

Let's never talk about this again.
