Councillor not amused by fake Twitter account

South End Coun. Sue Uteck says she is considering legal action after discovering she was being lampooned on the social networking site Twitter.

A Twitter account with the handle “fakesueuteck” was created Wednesday afternoon. The user wrote several messages which Uteck feels besmirched her reputation, including shots at “fakemayorkelly” and flirtations with “fakepetermackay.”

The account was deleted early Thursday afternoon, but a cached version listed the user as “helping council be more dysfunctional one stupid comment at a time.”

The real Uteck said she learned of the account when contacted by media on Thursday.

“I haven’t seen it, (but) apparently it’s quite offensive in some respects,” she said. “Personally, I feel violated, like somebody broke into my house.”

Uteck said she still hopes to find out who was behind it — and possibly sue.

“If I get there, I will be testing the water,” she said.
