So, as mentioned in my previous blog post, I changed my username to make things easier for me and others. However, it turns out to be an already-existing alias for a rather well-known artist. I made a small change (-R) to differentiate from it and just let it slide for the time being because I'm such a small fish that I didn't think there would be any trouble. BUUUUUUT, over the past few months, though my name change has seemed very inconsequential to anyone looking from the outside, there have been a few issues popping up:
This is a sampling of notifications I get every now and again on Twitter. It seems that some automated accounts were fed with the incorrect information that my Twitter handle (@genosyn) is the official Twitter account of another artist called "Deemo" (@DeemoRayark, I presume, but I can't be certain). As you can probably tell, no one has taken the slightest glance at my account to check the legitmacy of that information, given that I have no affiliation whatsoever with the official artist by the same name. I have tried sending a message to clear the confusion, but as far as I can tell, nothing has come of that. As you can see, there have been two tweets in the past two days promoting a concert in DC with the WRONG Twitter handle. (For the record, I've even changed my Twitter name to "Genosyn" now to distance myself from the artist as much as possible)
Though I'd normally figure that these things would settle themselves by the account holders double-checking their information, it appears that such is not the case. I can only assume that it's an isolated incident with these few automated Twitter accounts (because I only receive these concert notifications once in a blue moon), but it's irritating nevertheless. I don't like inadvertantly pulling traffic away from an artist, especially not a professional one.
Looks like I'll have to be thinking of another alias sooner than I expected :T
P.S. Isn't it delicious irony that the "R" to separate myself from the other artist ended up being the first letter of their second name-half as well? Fuuuuuu...
