I, Erika Sheppard, created a Twitter account called #iamerika28.
Then I changed the handle to #iamerika256.
The account was copied including the followers. Surfing to my friends page I can see my handle was changed in their followers list. However, all my friends tweets remain as #iamerika28
Someone else called erika quebec registers under @iamerika28 with email qu**@y***.**
erika quebec gets credit for my network's tweets!
This brings up an intellectual property issue. I am the trademark owner of iAmErika. I have been using my trademark in international trade for decades.
Previously I wrote to Twitter regarding 'iAmErika,' my legally protected trademark, and they did nothing. This is a new response from Twitter on June 3, 2014.
This is my Trademark at the USPTO:
Simply, I should own the only #iAmErika Twitter account!
