My Screengrabs of Nikki ("Betty") and Mari ("Veronica") Tweets

For hardcore (pun intended?) weinergate enthusiasts.

UPDATE 6/29 9:55pm PDT: Soundbitten blogpost on "Weinerology" is extremely comprehensive, including more detail than this post does, by far ...

Here are the screengrabs I took around June 2 (whenever Mike Stack's yfrog cache was discovered) showing all tweets in google cache made by Marianela (aka Veronica). The cache in google dated from May 16, and showed a total of 17 tweets starting from May 13 and going through May 14, and no subsequent tweets after May 14 until the cache was made.

If you have no idea what any of this stuff is, you are blessed, go enjoy your life. :-)

Reverse chronological list of tweets from/mentioning @starchild111 (Betty / Nikki Reid) that I have compiled, the oldest are at the bottom. Some of these are copy and pasted from text posting of the tweets previously posted by patterico awhile back (i think during Hunt for Ethel). No doubt most of @starchild111's actual tweets are missing, as you see replies to her in this compilation. Also included are screengrabs from Google cache from May 14 and May 27 which show the # of followers/followed by Nikki.

UPDATE 6:30am PDT 6/29: A cache of the starchild page from 4/11/01: here

UPDATE 3:55pm PDT: The screenshots shared by a phantom here and elsewhere soon after NYTimes revealed that Betty and Veronica are fake include a number of apparent screenshots of Nikki tweeting at @patriotusa76 and others defending AW following her. These tweets (maybe 10 of them?) date from May 16 and 17, assuming they are legitimate. I will not include full caps here, but here are links 1, 2, 3, 4. Interesting some of these screenshots apparently date from May 17-18, so someone thought they were interesting at the time.

Update 3:40pm PST: I forgot about this other cache found for @starchild111 on twitter found that purports to date from 1/1/2011 and shows Nikki as "Jenay" starting to tweet on August 14 (2010?) Its been claimed that this may actually a prior account that was closed before new account was opened by "Nikki"

UPDATE 6:35am PDT 6/29: The subsequent discovery of a cache from 4/11/01 of the starchild111 twitter account clearly shows that this is the same account. here
