HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – Ricky Barnes is young, hip and tech savvy, so there was no surprise when @RickyBarnes1 recently showed up in Tweet-dom. Problem is @rickybarnes is not the swashbuckling kid who played his way into the hunt last week at Augusta National.
“Some guy is posing as me,” Barnes said on Wednesday at Harbour Town. “Someone asked and I said no. I don’t even know how to do it.”
Barnes, the real one not the electronic imposter, said @RickyBarnes1 used a photo of him in his profile on Twitter, but according to twitter.com the @RickyBarnes1 profile had been suspended.
