Article Content Provider’s Chris McElroy | Namecritic Scams

How To: Destory Someone’s Credability Using Twitter

Posted in Namecritic by namecriticscam on January 10, 2009

Chris McElroy is a notorious scammer among certain circles, however some of the people he’s closest to haven’t heard of his deepest, darkest secret. Chris has stolen money from charity and lots of other evil stuff. He is the owner and chief bottle washer for Namecritic Inc, the company behind such services as Article Content Provider. We wanted a quick and effective way to communicate this message, causing maximum impact.

  1. The first phase was to set up a Namecritic Twitter account. I decided to personalize it with a picture and background image fitting to Namecritic’s character and our purpose.
  2. Secondly, I checked out who Chris is following and, more importantly, who is following him. This is a great way to get an idea of the people I would like to target.
  3. I started following the people in Chris’ social circle. They all seemed very friendly, and I started to interact with them.
  4. 5 hours later and this website has had 620 visitors from Twitter.

Twitter made it possible for me to lazer-target the exact demographic I was looking for: people who know Chris. I have already received a flood of direct messages from people who know him.

Twitter is a powerful tool to target someone’s social network and destroy their credability quickly. Over 5% of Chris’ Twitter followers have already sent me a message, and the majority will have already read what I have to say.  If that’s what can be done in 5 hours, what can be done in 5 weeks?

    You really think anyone takes this seriously? You must have a lot of time on your hands. Your obsession with this guy borders on insanity.

      Well John, he has admitted to stealing from a charity. Why wouldn’t someone take that seriously? Have a look at the search volume of people that look for this kind of thing. You may not care, probably because you are friends with Chris or are Chris. Other people do, and hundreds of people search for phrases like “Namecritic Scam” and “is Chris McElroy a scammer”. 100% of the negative comments we have received on this site have came from an IP address within walking distance of Chris. What a coincidence.

      Mr John Kerr, I have written a post just for you. If you are a real person, why not provide us with a URL where we can find out more?

  2. […] A Fictional Character Or A Moron By namecriticscam In typical fashion we receive our second ever comment sticking up for Chris, not openly written by Chris himself. The first one came from Miami and, shock horror, so too does […]

  3. […] Namecritic Scam was banned from Twitter. This was a sad day for Namecritic Scam, following our meaninful success in attacking Chris’ reputation among his nearest and dearest followers. Now, I am able to […]
