A Sad Human Being is Pretending to be JT Barrett on Twitter

By DJ Byrnes on August 19, 2014 at 7:51p

UPDATE (10:20 PM): @JTBarrett16 evolved into the second lowest form of Twitter account: "parody." It's still hoped the perpetrator gets the psychological help that's needed. 

JT Barrett is a redshirt freshman who recently assumed the reigns of a national-contending football team. Because JT Barrett is a thinking man, he deleted his Twitter account (@JTtheQB) upon his coronation. 

A sad, broken man used the vacuum to create @JTBarrett16, and try to pass himself off as Ohio State's next quarterback:

This account is a fraud, according to a little bird close to the program.

It's hoped the sad, broken man behind this fraudulent account gets the psychological help he obviously needs.

Cliff's Notes:

9 Route came on the site and told everyone he had inside recruiting information that he'd share at a certain time.  Like idiots, we all showed up at the appointed time and, guess what, he had nothing....except excuses as to why he didn't have anything.  However, rather than go douche mode, he sort of played it off in a funny way and then turned the whole thing into a joke about himself.  From there, we've all had the running joke of scheduling times to start threads about important information, etc.  The reason why he's back in the news is that we recently discovered that he had multiple accounts with multiple personalities......9Route being the most noteworthy (and least annoying) among them.  

It's not nearly as funny when you read what I wrote ....but it was funny at the time.

Yeti's have feelings too.


The one thing I hate about twitter is you can't track down and dickpunch morons like this without a search warrant. I truly pity anyone who does stupid crap like this.

Now that it's exposed, I suspect the little fella will go back into the obscurity that he deserves.

why doesn't twitter just ban the account...it's pretty easy to prove it's fraudulent isn't it?

That would take thinking and effort. Neither of those work with twitter and social media in general.

I was so close to finally joining Twitter. Just so that I could follow 11W and 11W faithful for my trip to OSU vs Navy game, maybe give a few updates. Now I'm informed that there are people out there with the sole purpose of deceiving me. Twitter free I remain.

You made the right call. I too have never had any interest in twitter. He'll, I can't even tell who is saying what to whom on those things. Not worth the effort. And fake JT is just another reminder of how stupid a medium it is.

I consider myself somewhere between cro-magnon and homo-erectus, Yet still brighter than this douche- besides, at 47 years I'm still 6'5 and 260 and would love to bitch slap this punk into next season!  Sorry, caught myself acting like a SEC fan-

Isn't this the first sign that "you've made it"? I mean anybody who's anybody has a fake twitter made about them. Congratulations Joe and welcome to the big leagues.

This might be the greatest photobomb of all time. Hadn't seen it yet. Thanks for sharing. 

The only thing that would have been better is if it was Mark May instead of Desmond.

No one should be surprised. This is unfortunately a commonality that goes without repercussion.

Question: is everyone against fake urbans twitter too? Cause both Urb- and especially his wife- find it amusing and fun
Fake accounts can be homage as much as humor.

When it's an established person, it seems less attention grabby I guess. I, for one, thoroughly enjoy @FauxPelini. Case in point:

Go Bucks!!

Those fakes are satire. This is more like fantasy. This guys is tweeting as if he is JT. Wheras the others are simply being funny.
