San Diego GOP Hack Tony Krvaric Booted From Twitter

San Diego County GOP chairman/apparatchik Tony Krvaric is making noise in the blogosphere today for getting himself booted from Twitter. Krvaric registered the unused names of several of his Democratic opponents on Twitter–and used those accounts to tweet ridiculous things. Included among his targets was his Democratic chairman counterpart Jess Durfee.

Twitter made Krvaric ditch his fake accounts, and erased his personal feed. Krvaric was unapologetic about his actions.

From the San Diego Union-Tribune:

“Basically, they are pissed off that they didn’t register them first,” Krvaric said. “For them not to register their own … It just shows how far behind they are …

“There’s nothing illegal about it and I don’t think I did anything wrong. What sucks is I have to redo my whole account. All my followers and everything. In some way, although I want my full name back, I was following too many people so this will be like a cleansing.”

We’re all snarked out for the day, so here’s some from Wonkette if you’re interested.
