Is this the official Google account for the its longer term superphone project?
Google has an account just for the Nexus One (@googlenexusone), which while not “verified” by Twitter has quickly snagged thousands of followers. @Superphones, has not.
If the account is fake, someone could pull a fast one on a blogger hungry for a headline.
The @superphones account also has some very weak copy in the About section: “Smartphones are so yesterday. Superphones have arrived.” That alone puts the account in question.
Also, why is the account set to @superphones, when @superphone is a blank account? Preference? Surely Google could have gotten the better username. Finally, the account lacks polish, with no background image or link.
Our call: fake account. Whatever information comes from the account, be careful with. Are you the guy behind the account? We would love some confirmation.
