AASB: Is the Twitter account TheAndySamberg legit?

Ask Andy Samberg Blog: Is the Twitter account TheAndySamberg legit?

Here it is:

No. It's not for real. The only real one is "andysamberg" which merely links you to "thelonelyisland." Andy texts his friends, but he does not participate in online social websites.

How do I know this is true? Actually, I don't. I'm guessing that it's not. Here are the reasons:

1. Andy doesn't go on social websites. TheLonelyIsland blog (Joni) already told us that.

2. These aren't the kind of things Andy would say. For example, Andy's favorite SNL digital short is Roy Rules (because it's about his brother in law) and not Chronicles of Narnia.

3. Andy wouldn't quote his own works. When you make stuff, you kind of get sick of it or don't find it funny.

4. It's not a verfied account.

5. If this was Andy, it would have more followers. For example the Twitter account "andysamberg" is Andy, and all it is is a link to "TheLonelyIsland" Twitter account. And that Andy account has 1,500 followers (and only the one tweet).

6. Andy's friends would follow him. Seth meyers, SNL, and The Lonely Island (and many others) aren't following that Twitter page. (But they are following all the other legitimate SNL tweeterers.

7. He never posts pictures or announces something coming up (that's not already all over the Web).

So there you go. Not Andy. I could be proven wrong, but I doubt it.
