Sue Ramirez unsuccessful in her attempt to talk to ‘poser’
Social media accounts dedicated to celebrities are made by fans to express their admiration for their idols. However, one Sue Ramirez-dedicated Twitter account may have crossed the line, blurring the distinction between a fan account and that of a poser.
Ramirez shared a screengrab of her conversation with the handler of the said fan account via Twitter on Monday, Nov. 12. Apparently, she has been trying to talk to the handler of the account since 2016 to no avail.
“I have been trying to get in touch with my poser since 2016, dahil nalilito na nga ang mga tao kung ano talaga ang real account ko,” she wrote, reminding her fans that the said account, whose username is the same as her verified Instagram account, is not hers. “Sa mga nalilito parin, hindi po ako ang @sueannadoodles sa Twitter.”
(I have been trying to get in touch with my poser since 2016 because people are confused with what my real [Twitter] account is. To those who are confused, I am not @sueannadoodles on Twitter.)

In the screengrab she posted, Ramirez learned that the name of the fan account’s handler was “Mariz” on May 5, 2016. She asked “Mariz” to tell Twitter users that Ramirez’s official Twitter username is @sueanna_dodd as people are getting confused with the two accounts.
“Sorry po kung akala ng iba na ikaw po ito,” was Mariz’s only reply. “This page is dedicated to you po.”
(I am sorry if others think that you [handle this account]. This page is dedicated to you.)
Ramirez did not state whether it was her last conversation with “Mariz.”
Ramirez’s fans were surprised to know that the account they were following does not belong to Ramirez after all.
Halaaaa all this time siya yung finofollow ko. Hindi pala ikaw yaaaan? 🤨

Some pointed out that the fan account has twice the number of followers as compared to Ramirez’s official account. The fan account has garnered over 655,000 followers while Ramirez’s account has over 315,000 followers, as of this writing.
Kaya nga , malilito talaga ang tao akala nila yun siya kasi malaki followers niya

Others said “Mariz” blocks fans who point out that the said account is not Ramirez’s.
Asus dedicated ka diyan, e panay naman ang block niya sa amin e, sa mga taong sumusuporta at nagmamahal sayo, pag sinasabi namin yung tunay mong twitter account magugulat ka na lang nakablock ka na sakanya haha, kulit.

Some fans noted that if the account was really dedicated to Ramirez, “Mariz” should have put a disclaimer or stated Ramirez’s official username on its bio.
Or sana lagyan man lang nya ng Official fan page etc. Kaway kaway sa mga nabiktima din before ng maling nafollow hahaha btw ate @sueanna_dodd super gandaaa mo lalo na ng mga recent posts mo sa ig 😘💖

“Need mo na e verify yung account mo (You need to have your account verified),” advised one fan, @DeeDauntless.
Need mo na e verify yung account mo.

Another netizen tried to make light of the situation by suggesting a “punny” solution.
Why don't you ask her to change the name of that account to some maybe a fanatic name like SuelidRamirez. HAHAHA

“Why don’t you ask her to change the name of that account to some maybe a fanatic name like SuelidRamirez [laughs],” said one netizen, NotTheTypicalPerson (@EpitomeOfSadness).
Ramirez has yet to divulge further details on her attempts to reach out to the supposed poser, as of this writing. JB
