It’s about time we get a little urban legend action in this entire social media business.
People claim Twitter account @zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz is managed by the late socialite-photographer Natasha Singh who apparently died a tragic death in Delhi, India at the age of 31. Her death happened in 2001, and Twitter was launched in 2006 — which sort of skews this entire story. At the time of her demise, police stated that she committed suicide from jumping off the ninth floor of a hotel, however four days after her death the police department re-opened the investigation with claims that it may have been a murder.
The story goes that Natasha Singh somehow opened up this Twitter account from whatever afterlife she resides in and that she tweeted out one eerie message regarding her murder (or perhaps lack of life).
Of course the strange thing is that if you visit @zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz from a computer, you won’t automatically follow her. However, if you visit her account from a smart phone, you will mysteriously follow her. Yeah, it’s pretty strange. I’m too creeped out to do it from my iPhone. Of course that would explain her near 4 million Twitter followers (in comparison, Dana White has 2.6 million).
This Natasha Singh, a true socialite even from beyond the grave.
