@matttissley a fake account pretending to have cancer and spamming celebs for attention

Update: after lots of tweets from angry people not believing him, “Matt” tweeted on July 8 that he was “cancer free”. The whole account has been nothing but lies all along who knows what the person running the account is planning to do now.

There is an account on Twitter that has 6,000 followers the person running it is pretending to be a young boy with cancer. The account gets lots of attention, RT’s and favorites.

Here is how the person running it is able to trick 1000’s of people.

“He” (we have no idea who is actually behind the account) was using pictures of real little boys who had cancer and were bald.

20130704-152409.jpg

This was the picture “he” was using for a while. The real boy live in Australia.
When he was “caught” this was his reply

20130704-152657.jpg

He claimed that his family met this boy but the real child’s family has never met anyone from this fakers family and doesn’t like knowing that their picture was used .. Misused in this way
click to see what the real boys family says about this account

He then changed his pic to this boy:

20130704-152734.jpg

Well, the problem with using this pic is, this young man passed away at the age of 13.

20130704-152830.jpg

20130704-152845.jpg

He has now changed his pic to a yellow ribbon.

The other thing this account does is only follow verified accounts. All the people he follows are public figures like celebrities and sports figures and media sites!

20130704-152944.jpg

20130704-152958.jpg

So what this person does is log on to twitter a few times a day, check which verified accounts are tweeting and then he spams them with the same message.

20130704-153232.jpg

He claims he “wants to share his story” the way to do that would be a website or blog .. He has neither.

This “share his story” is a trick to get celebs, sports people to follow him.

He asks them to follow him so he can DM his story, people can only DM each other if they follow each other.

I have actually tweeted with people he’s tricked and found out he never DMs people “his story” or emails them if they give him they email.

All he cares about is the attention and followers.

I hope this explains this crazy account! My aunt died of cancer last year and I have a friend who is VERY sick.

20130704-153707.jpg

20130704-153721.jpg

This is why I have NO patience or tolerance for this account and accounts like it. There have been several ..

This account is the most successful and hardest to take down which is my goal!!

How to make a collage header for Twitter

The look of your Twitter account is pretty important! It shows your followers what you care about!
It might be your idol, favorite music group, sport, tv shows. People might decide whether or not to follow you based on the look of your account! What does your header tell people about you?

Headers don’t show up on some mobile apps but does on the iPads and desktops.

Here’s mine:

20130401-194456.jpg

Here’s one way you can make one like it!

1. Download Pic Frame

20130401-194651.jpg

2. Choose the 2×2 frame choice – there is also a 3×3 — we will be using 2 of these side by side. So you will either have 8 or 18 pics.

20130401-194850.jpg

You can also use other frames to make a collage then put a collage in one frame-

3. Pick your 4 or 9 pics

20130401-195009.jpg

4. Save this pic by taking a screen cap or saving in your photo library.

5. Then choose more pics.

20130401-195141.jpg

6. You may like borders or not. Use the style button and slide the width bar to choose no border

20130401-195301.jpg

7. Save this picture too.

Then choose one more frame and put your two pictures in it!

20130401-195612.jpg

20130401-195636.jpg

There you go! You should have a pretty cool header now to personalize your account!

Another Faker @stjudetara pretending to be 19 yr old cancer patient

As my friends and followers know my aunt Patti has cancer. She may not live very long and watching her suffer is horrible. She tries to be strong and brave but no one wants to die and leave loved ones behind. She has a 19 yr old daughter, who is my cousin.

When someone on Twitter is pretending to have a disease to get attention it upsets my family and me. We are NOT afraid to question them if their story sounds suspicious or expose them if we have proof!

Earlier this week @gaystraightlive pretended to have cancer and be in the Memphis St Jude Hospital but my followers helped me out and we tracked down all her pictures from other sites! She deleted after I posted a blog here.

Today I got a tweet that said follow @stjudetara she has cancer and needs support. I checked her bio:

20120204-163715.jpg

2 things caught my attention
1. St Judes is a Children’s Hospital a 19 yr old is an adult.
2. Who “lives” in a hospital?

I tweeted her and she replied I said something like the bill would be really high. She said:

20120204-163943.jpg

I said how could she be there if she’s 19? She said:

20120204-164030.jpg

Hmm
Not at a Children’s Hospital.

I asked why she lived ther she said:

20120204-164120.jpg

Nobody has chemotherapy everyday! It’s strong medication that is really hard on your body!

Also, she has posted pics that made her look real

20120204-164241.jpg

20120204-164255.jpg

20120204-164316.jpg

But they were all stolen from a blog from a girl named Allison

20120204-164403.jpg

20120204-164444.jpg

20120204-164505.jpg

It seems like she had fooled a lot of people and was even trying to get Demi Lovato and Justin Bieber to notice her.

20120204-164609.jpg

This makes me SO sad that people Are lying and faking having cancer just to get attention on line. It’s really sad. Most people in Twitter are really sweet and want to help. These people are counting on that!
If they would use their energy to raise money to help cure diseases they would make the world a better place!

Thanks @st0p_posers for helping by finding the blog she was stealing from!

Sorry to write another blog about a negative topic but I will always work to expose these fakers! It’s disrespectful to the brave people who are sick and their loving, supportive families!

A sad story of @gaystraightlive someone using twitter to lie about having cancer 

Go straight to the bottom for PROOF this was a hoax! 

The day after this was written “Jenny” deleted her Twitter account without any explanation.

People suffer from terrible diseases and each one of us has probably lost someone in our life to cancer or another life threatening illness. Personally, my aunt is very
Ill with cancer. Sometimes the treatment is worse than the disease. She has neuropathy from her chemotherapy, she’s bald, she’s sad and scared. Sometimes she’s too sick for chemotherapy and then she’s scared the cancer will grow faster.

Sometimes people on Twitter lie about having a disease, getting injured or being suicidal only to get attention and followers! Most times it’s easy to spot posers! They make mistakes like posting a pic from Google Images or lying and getting caught.

Lately, there has been a person saying she was sick and everyone including my mom and I believed her. Now we are doubting it. We even have Twitter friends who got suspicious too.

This person has been tweeting two celebs a LOT. Both celebs are super sweet and really worried about her.

This person has done a lot of research and is using big technical words about her condition but there are some problems and it’s getting harder to believe her.

One thing we noticed a LOT is her story changes quickly

20120201-234004.jpg

20120201-234021.jpg

I know that’s a small thing — hey how old are you? when’s your birthday ?? Oh In a couple of months — then it’s in 2 weeks —

But her “mom” tweeted this with just minutes in between

20120201-234128.jpg

20120201-234322.jpg

Here’s another example

20120201-234714.jpg

20120201-234735.jpg

Here’s another example:

How do things change so fast??

Also she had scans and ONE hour later had surgery to removed a tumor from behind her heart

20120201-234901.jpg

20120201-234935.jpg

Also the day she had surgery to remove a tumor from behind her heart she was trying to do a tiny chat. One day her mom tweeted this pic:

20120201-235937.jpg

Most people, if they are that sick would be in a hospital gown, they would have heart monitors, a breathing tube, they would be look awful!!

This pic shows a younger girl check out the items by her ..

20120202-000152.jpg

I see a coloring book and light chasers like you get at the Disney Store! Not things a 14 yr old girl would have. Also it looks like they were Christmas gifts.
Anyway odd picture!

The next day she played cards with a nurse And a girl on the ward and tweeted this pic

Update a follower reading this found this pic on a Tumbler Account!! With a caption Like Missing You! Look at the end of this post for proof it originally was on a Tumblr Post

20120202-000354.jpg

This is odd to be up and around other patients a few days after surgery.

After the mom tweeted that Jenny was terminal and would stop therapy and go home to die “mom” tweeted this

20120202-000932.jpg

That’s a strange reaction to finding out you will die soon. I would think you would have lots of other things to cry about!

The night she find out she was terminally I’ll mom posted this

20120202-001212.jpg

However, Jenny got on Twitter and tweeted for about 6 hrs straight and even hosted a tiny chat

20120202-001750.jpg

Finally people were getting so concerned because so many of us were so worried about her a few people actually called the hospital!

20120202-001957.jpg

20120202-002015.jpg

They live in Sugarland Texas but say they are at the St Jude’s in Tennessee

20120202-002107.jpg
We actually expected the hospital to say “We can’t give out that information” or “that’s confidential” but the nurses were very kind and tried to find Jenny for them.

She posted a link to FaceBook pages that said here’s us. There were tons of pics of a blond girl and blond mom. When. I said “you have changed and it looks like Jen was very loved,” the “mom” said ” oh that’s my sister and my niece” !?!?

Also, the “mom” or “Jen” keeps RTing where the prayers are coming from Amy Tweet that the Aloha State is praying for you or prayers from Spain.
She also kinda brags at how Many RTs. her pics get and how many followers she has — ” haha I was hoping for one RT but I got 40!” “I just realized I don’t have 300 followers anymore!” If someone was getting followers and RTs because of dying it wouldn’t really make them happy.

I know this isn’t absolute proof but my aunt loved FaceBook but hasn’t logged on in a long time. When you are told you are dying most people don’t jump on Twitter. They talk to friends, pray, cry. It’s up to you to believe her or not. I think it’s very suspicious.
There are other things but I think these are the biggest things that are red flags!
There just isn’t proof of a 14 yr old girl who matches the profile pic being in St Judes Hosp.

Here’s another example of changing stories I had to add here. My app make added pics go to the end once a decision like putting a kid in isolation is made it’s unlikely to change in 10 minutes.

20120202-063850.jpg

20120202-063914.jpg

Here is the pic she used! It is a pic of a 10 yr old girl who really was sick and came home to die!!

20120202-100223.jpg

@masonculp A Faker on Twitter UPDATE he’s back as @drewcook15 all these accounts were run by @mprest21 

Update 4/21 we just found out yesterday that these accounts were opened and run by a girl who’s twitter name is @mprest21

We figured she was involved because “Mason” asked a celeb to use “his cousin merest’s” email one time.

Well yesterday @mprest21 announced out of the blue that she had Lung Cancer.

Go straight to the bottom of this blog for a pic of her post. That’s how this site posts pics… Sorry they only post at the end.

She then sent a tweet to Davis Cleveland telling him she has cancer.

A person we know named Dani really has CF and has been monitoring these fake accounts with me. She was suspicious and e mailed Margaret (mprest21)

Margaret admitted she was faking it and that she was behind the other accounts.
She said she just wanted attention and felt ignored by celebs.
She hoped lying would get follows, attention and even e mails and autographs from them.

She began apologizing and deleted @drewcook15
But her apologies aren’t quite sincere. She said she set up @drewcook4 but he’s just a regular person..
see pic at bottom.

So it’s kind of sad to think this girl was using CF and cancer to lie to celebs for attention and follows. She didn’t care about people who really have this disease like our fans Maci, Caley and Dani.

She is apologizing but only because we exposed her…

I hate to say it but don’t believe anyone who tweets and says ” I have _____ follow me.”

Update: 4/15 sorry to say but this person who pretended to be a 7 yr old with Cystic Fibrosis is back on Twitter with a new name. This time “he’s” @drewcook15

I know it’s the same person because he/she is tweeting ALL the same celebs and using the same pictures of a boy named Drew with a broken arm that was stolen from a blog called life with little boys.. I’ll add the new stolen one to the bottom of the blog.

Faking having a disease to get attention from stars is wrong in so many ways! People we know who are really sick with CF are really hurt and insulted! The celebs they lie to just to get followed by are going to never know who to believe in the future.

It’s a terrible thing to do. Let @drewcook15 know we don’t want him on Twitter lying to us and faking having a disease!!

About a week ago a “7 year old boy with CF” opened a Twitter and is trying to get celebs to follow him. He’s faking and we can prove it.

If you are in a hurry go straight to the end to see where he stole the profile pics from

A while back kid star Davis Cleveland who stars as Flynn made friends with Maci Drewry a girl who battles a serious disease called cystic fibrosis. He helped her get followers, invited her to the set of Shake it up and has gotten involved in finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. He has raised over $35,000 and participated in walks that raise Money to find a cure.

20120130-201056.jpg

Here, Davis had all the guys from Shake it up join him in a walk to raise Money to find a cure for CF.

Sadly, many fakers have popped up on Twitter, using cystic fibrosis to get attention and followers.
There are many clues someone is faking.

1. No personal pic. Kids with CF have a very distinct look– they look sick!
They are small and thin for their age. Their lungs and pancreas don’t function properly so they don’t get the oxygen and nutrition they need to grow properly.

2. No details about treatments. Kids with CF have specific treatments to help with all the symptoms. I’m not posting then here unless a faker is using this blog to be a better faker!

3. All their tweets are about getting followers. Read the timeline. Here’s what you’ll see.
@______ please follow me I Have CF

@______ please follow me I Have CF

@______ please follow me I Have CF

@______ please follow me I Have CF

4. No proof kids with CF could easily say what treatments they get, know specific medical words, take pics of their meds, or themselves at the hospital.

5. They lie. Because they are faking they lie to try to “prove” they have CF or they aren’t faking and they mess up trying to keep track of the lies!

6. The first people they Tweet are Davis Cleveland and Maci Drewry. They want them to get them followers! 

So let’s check @MasonCulp s profile
First of all he days he’s 7 ! Awfully young to be tweeting all hours of the day. And “he’s” tweeting random teen celebs that no 7 yr old boy would know Austin Mahone ? Ryan Beatty ?
This is more likely a teen girl who felt ignored on Twitter with a typical account.

#1 no personal pic

20120130-202236.jpg

Mason was using a pic of Maci, Davis and Maci’s brother Blake
Why would a 7 yr old use this pic? 

#2 people have been asking for days what treatments he’s getting! Kids with CF would have at least 5 things they would be able to mention ( I’m not saying them in case fakers are using this as a guide ) Mason finally said Albuteral

20120130-202550.jpg

#3 all tweets are requests for follows

20120130-203011.jpg

#4 no proof
He says he’s tweeting from his moms newer iPad but doesn’t know how to add a pic when asked to post proof of meds. Everyone knows it’s super easy to post a pic and how did he get his profile pic?

#5 they lie
One day he said he had a cousin on Twitter then denied it

20120130-203338.jpg

20120130-203354.jpg

So which is it ?? If he lied about this why should we believe anything else ?

#the first people the tweet are Davis and Maci

20120130-203529.jpg

20120130-203600.jpg

How does a 7 yr old find Davis and Maci’s twitter the first day on Twitter? Most people’s first tweets are hi Twitter! I’m new here! And they are kinda lost. This 7 yr old was tweeting, following and DMing on his first day!

So I believe this is more than enough proof. Let @MasonCulp know you don’t like him/her lying and faking about this serious Life threatening disease! It’s is totally disrespectful to the kids like Caley and Maci and families that suffer everyday with treatments, hospital visits and health scares!

@MasonCulp posted this pic

20120202-194726.jpg

People told him he was lying that the kid was obviously a actor/model for a pic and pointed out the watermark so he deleted the pic and posted this one instead

20120202-194852.jpg

He also tweeted thus pic of his “friends but the kids all have name tags on and the names he gives aren’t even close!

20120202-195011.jpg

One thing I noticed today is he has a “brother” named @julianculp who’s saying ” my brother @MasonCulp has CF follow us both!”

Update this is “Mason” s profile pic

20120205-073839.jpg

He stole it from a blog called Life with Boys and the kid’s real name is Drew.

20120205-073940.jpg

Here’s “Julian’s” profile pic

20120205-074011.jpg

This kid is really Jacob.

20120205-074051.jpg

One day “Mason” forgot he was tweeting from his account and thought he was tweeting from his “Julian” account. He slipped up and tweeted

My Favorite Apps to make Twitter so fun!!

I have so much fun on Twitter and meeting celebs and have found cool apps to make it even more fun!
This blog is going to tell you all about my favorite apps, how to use them and what makes them Cool!!

1. Emoji
Emoji is a separate keyboard but instead of letters and symbols and black and white it has pictures!
These can only be seen in other I devices like iPhones, iPads, iPods,
I use them to show you how I feel  or play games like name that movie  muppets
Name that song baby
You do need to follow directions go to settings and put in emoji keyboard.

20111126-164018.jpg

2. Camera+

My hobby is meeting celebs and sometimes you only get 1 second to take a pic with someone. If the pic is too dark, light you can use Camera + to fix it. Here is a before and after

20111126-164521.jpg
Before

20111126-164745.jpg
After using camera+

It also has crops, and other features, it can take Better pics than a iPhone in many settings.

20111126-164946.jpg

3. Photo Studio
This is just a fun photo app that can change your favorite pics in creative ways, charcoal sketch, fun house mirror, ripple and tons of other ways. I use this app to play games with my followers on Twitter. I use a pic if me with a celeb and app it! Then followers have to guess who the celeb is.
Wanna try?

20111126-165256.jpg

That’s me with Demi Lovato!
This is a fun app that is easy to use! You can pic your favs and use them easily!

20111126-165424.jpg

4. Watermark is a great app to have if you are getting exclusive pics of celebs and you don’t want people stealing your pics and using them on Twitter or as an icon

Here is an example of how it works

20111126-170005.jpg

You can make your own and make it any color, font, size or angle you want .
You can see how people won’t want to steal a pic if your name is on it!

20111126-170127.jpg

5. imikimi
It is worth it to pay $1.99 since the free version has annoying pop ups and limited frames!

This really cool and fun app let’s you make collages, calendars, and face full ins with your pics.
Here are some examples of what I’ve made with imikimi

20111126-170403.jpg

This is called Fill in the face. I took my own pics of Bella and Zendaya and added them in to these pics

20111126-170537.jpg

This is called a collage. You use the search and find what you want, panels, collages, fill in face, etc.

As you can see this app is really fun! You can even put yourself on the cover if a magazine.

20111126-170730.jpg

6. IMovie
Is an app where you can quickly and easily use your pics and video to create and upload a video to You Tube, Google, an email or other places.
It’s not too fancy but easy to learn. I like that you can add titles to each pic or video and use music that is free to use so you won’t get in to a problem with copyrighted music.
If you upload a movie longer than a minute or so you need to connect to wifi.
I have several of my movies in my you tube channel alexirob

20111126-171119.jpg

7. Snap Camera! This adds titles/words/notes to your pics or collages! You can say Happy Birthday or put Twitter names or Character names in a collage that you made in Imikimi
Examples :

20111126-171404.jpg

20111126-171427.jpg

20111126-171446.jpg

20111126-171530.jpg

8 TweeGram

It’s really cool if you like quotes or poetry. You write out a saying and have lots of options with how it could look. You can choose Typewriter, Hello Kitty, telegram then use twitpic or Instagram to share your message in a creative way

Examples:
