Update: 10/12/2012 the @LaJollaPrincess Twitter account has been renamed or deleted. We win against liars and frauds again.
Many of you know that we at The Trenches have a nose for Twitter fakes. I’ve outed a few of the more prominent ones over the years, Jo Von Ho, Raquel and the “sister” Anamaris, and more recently AlieNicole7. There are a few different types of use case scenarios for fake accounts. The sockpuppet is the most common type of fake and it’s usually used for trolling. Then there are the fake accounts that are created for the purpose of social engineering and or honeypots. Some people create fakes accounts to live vicariously through their fake construct as in the case of the crazy cat lady in the Catfish “documentary” (parts may have been dramatized, according to some sources). If you wanna know more about online fakes, I highly recommend Catfish as a primer of sorts for understanding online fakes. Then there’s the infiltrator – the fake that’s a real person who pretends to be something they’re not for any number of reasons (see: spying, for one).
So what type of fake is @LaJollaPrincess?
I’ve known about the LaJollaPrincess account for quite some time and had even enlisted some gals (they prefer to remain anonymous) to try to get close to “her” and get a phone number, just to see if this person would actually allow others to get close. Fakes will sometimes lie completely, or just partly, so I wanted to see where this approach of trying to get close would lead. Neither of the two gals I enlisted in this effort were successful in getting close even though they interacted with the @LaJollaPrincess account a lot. No phone number was ever obtained.
I followed the account for a while when it followed me simply because I’d seen the account being flirted with by stupid conservative guys. I thought it was a fake account straight away and knew there were lulz to be had. I tried interacting with the account publicly and via DM to try to gain its trust. Never happened. I think I scared it off and it unfollowed me after I called out the old @JesusIsMyDude fake account (more on this poor dumb bastard soon). LOL! Most fake accounts tend to avoid me – they’ll follow every other “conservative” person who has a very visible profile but they usually avoid me like the plague (another easy tell for me to spot). This shows that the infiltrator/honeypot types of fakes tend to do a little homework regarding who to stay away from to avoid scrutiny.
All the personally identifying pics have been wiped from the LaJollaPrincess twitter account in the last 2 days as this story was developing, but as we know Google caches things.
Here’s where it gets juicy. The pictures associated with the LaJollaPrincess Twitter account are of a transsexual (male -> female) who now goes by the name Jaklyn Fior Keen per this Facebook account. Here’s Jaklyn’s Myspace account. Kinda funny if you knew anything about the LaJollaPrincess account, because the “girl” was supposed to be preggers.
“I am transgender male to female. I do not have surgery and have no intention on it. I only date heterosexual men or BI I guess , and I have only dated heterosexual men.”
The last video to date in the http://www.youtube.com/user/Fiorwestcoast YouTube channel was uploaded on February 5, 2012:
The first video in the series goes back four years to Oct 23, 2008:
And here’s the “transition” video for all you “friends” of LaJollaPrincess
Then there’s this video which shows Jacklyn being a member of Occupy Memphis:
Occupy Memphis?! LOL! Imagine if the LaJollaPrincess Twitter account was used to get dirt on a bunch of conservatives. So, all of you conservative men who were duped into thinking this account was real, I hope you didn’t send send any “dick pics”. Although, it’s possible someone just bogarted Jaklyn’s pics for the purpose of seeding a fake Twitter account, but I wouldn’t be so sure. If you watch the YouTube videos, you’ll see that Jaklyn is very keen (pun intended) on discussing politics, economics, and social issues. My guess… Jaklyn is a left-leaning Libertarian who was toying with conservatives.
LOL at all the conservative dudes who flirted with LaJollaPrincess – and guess what… Ken Gardner (@kesgardner) strikes again! Ken has a history of flirting with fake girls on Twitter who are very young.
Here’s the before (should we call him “Jack”?):
And here’s Jaklyn after hormones, boobs, etc. (still a dude):
The people LaJollaPrincess interacted with the most:
Speaking of conservative men who send dick pics to girls on Twitter, we’ll need to start outing you as we find out about you, especially if you have any influence in the scene. You’re too much of a liability for us not to call to account.
