Who are you ? Do you work for the social network ?
« I am dinosaur, just a random user. I don’t work for them. »
How did you get « 1970 » in your biography ?
« The 1970/1969 in the bio is achieved via a glitch with the way time is counted on the internet. It is impossible to intentionally recreate. »
What are your plans with this account ?
« My plans with this account are to just keep tweeting and build a brand for myself. »
Is Twitter aware of this glitch ? Could they delete your account ?
« They are aware of this glitch, but they don’t just randomly delete accounts. The only reason they would is if i break the terms of service. »
If it is impossible to « intentionally recreate » how did you do it ?
« I got extremely lucky and created the account when the Unix number reset to 0 for an EXTREMELY small time. »
